Meeting Elephants With a Sad Past
Rhinelander native Ann Eshelman worked for many years as a public defender in the Northwoods. After retiring she headed to northeast Cambodia to volunteer at a rehabilitation center for aging elephants…that had been used for logging and other hard labor. WXPR’s Natalie Jablonski talked with Eshelman about her experience volunteering at an elephant sanctuary that also has a big environmental and social impact.
Ann Eshelman is speaking at Nicolet College in Rhinelander on Thursday, February 27th.
