Flora the Elephant
Flora, for which the Circus is named, is an orphaned elephant that David Balding rescued when her mother was killed by ivory poachers in Africa. For 15 years, Flora was a beloved star of the Circus that bears her name. In 2000, Flora retired from stage life and currently resides in the elephant sanctuary in Hohenwald, Tennessee. You can learn more about Flora’s journey to her current home in the documentary One Lucky Elephant or by visiting the website of Flora’s Elephant Sanctuary by clicking here.
