Sunday Morning with H.S.H. Princess Stephanie of Monaco: The Fullness of Circus

"It's nice to have other types of shows and cabarets and all, but we must keep a little tradition. And for me a real circus is live animals and clowns, not only aerial acts or very choreographed acts; you need a bit of everything. We have to evolve, of course, but I think the most important thing is keeping animals in the circus."

-- as interviewed in Spectacle magazine.

I'm delighted to learn of Princess Stephanie's statement about "keeping animals in the circus" This insures the future of performing animals, and via the exceptional educational value that circus represents ... helps to insure their conservation.
