Mike Sandlofer, with his Great American Frontier Show, is one individual with a seemingly unbelievable past, but the strangest thing about it is that it is absolutely true. He was at the trade show looking for workers to take on the road with him during the 2011 season.
Mike travels the fair circuit with his wife Sharon and Daughter Benna.

Sharon and Mike spent many years in the circus business, operating "Circus With A Purpose" and raising awareness about animal treatment, American history and the environment.
It was during an interview in 2010 that I was amazed to learn about Mike Sandlofer's past before the circus. He had a career in the military. He was a Navy Seal and Vietnam veteran. In 1981, Mike rescued the first great sperm whale from a prolonged stranding. Then he made subsequent whale rescues in Newfoundland and off Baja California. He also released the 1st captive born Manatee back into the wild. Not to be outdone, Sandlofer invented and later, patented a special harness that has helped to safely rescue many other animals. He also trained for the military the first seal team (the animals) to penetrate the fuselage of an airplane underwater and bring out the pilot or passengers.
Even before the whale rescue, in 1976 Sandlofer founded the North Wind Museum with famous performer Richie Havens.

In 1984, Michael was awarded the Rolex award for Enterprise.
