CENTRAL FLORIDA, USA – The pachyderms are packing it in. After featuring elephants as a key component of their shows for 145 years, the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus will retire the animals from the “Biggest Show on Earth.”

On Sunday, 40 elephants will take their final bow before packing up their trunks and retiring to a central Florida at a 200-acre conservation center run by the circus.

After these final performances, all 11 pachyderms will travel south to join the rest of the Ringling Bros. herd of 29 elephants at the Feld Family’s Ringling Bros. Center for Elephant Conservation (CEC), a 200-acre facility in central Florida dedicated to the care and conservation of these critically endangered animals, and home to the largest Asian elephant herd in the Western Hemisphere.

Ringling Bros. will live stream the final curtain call for their elephants Sunday on their Facebook page.
