Tourism Attractions:

Animal sanctuary
An animal sanctuary is a facility where animals are brought to live and be protected for the rest of their lives. Unlike animal shelters, sanctuaries do not seek to place animals with individuals or groups, instead maintaining each animal until his or her natural death. In some cases, an establishment may have characteristics of both a sanctuary and a shelter; for instance, some animals may be in residence temporarily until a good home is found and others may be permanent residents. The mission of sanctuaries is generally to be a safe haven, where the animals receive the best care that is possible for the sanctuary's means. Animals are not bought, sold, or traded, nor are they used for animal testing. The resident animals are given the opportunity to behave as naturally as possible in a protective environment.

National park
A national park is a reserve of land, usually declared and owned by a national government, protected from most human development and pollution. National parks are a protected area of IUCN category II. The largest national park in the world is the Northeast Greenland National Park, which was established in 1974.

Elephant Sanctuary
The Elephant Sanctuary, consists of three separate and protected, natural habitat environments for Asian and African elephants; a 2200-acre Asian facility, a 200-acre quarantine area and a 300-acre African habitat. The goal is to retire 100 elephants from zoos and circuses to the sanctuary.
