David Balding is the producer and co-founder of St. Louis’ very own Circus Flora, which was named after Flora the Elephant. David adopted Flora when she was a baby elephant but after 16 years together, the two parted ways. Their story is the subject of the critically acclaimed documentary, “One Lucky Elephant,” which debuts on the OWN (Oprah Winfrey Network) on December 1st. The film got raves from the New York Times and Entertainment Weekly.

I have had the honor and privilege of getting to know David. After years of enjoying Circus Flora as a spectator and fan, I was asked to join the Board of Directors. David is a creative inspiration and a most interesting gentleman. Circus Flora is a St. Louis treasure and so is he!!

    Thank goodness, Flora is safe in a sanctuary now. Hopefully Balding will never be able to get his hands on another innocent elephant.
