As a child, Jack spent his days cleaning animal cages for his local veterinarian and exploring the creek behind his house. Today, Jack Hanna explores the corners of the globe as one of the most visible and respected animal ambassadors in the world. His enthusiasm and “hands-on” approach to wildlife conservation has won him widespread acclaim as an author, television personality, conservationist, and director emeritus of the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium.
Recognized around the country as America’s favorite zookeeper, Hanna has made countless television appearances since 1983 on shows such as Good Morning America, CNN’s Larry King Live, The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Fox News Programs, and the Late Show with David Letterman.
Hanna took his infectious energy to the airwaves by creating two of his own nationally syndicated television programs Jack Hanna’s Animal Adventures and most recently Jack Hanna’s Into the Wild.
Into the Wild is unscripted and action-packed — be sure to tune in as he and his family explore the corners of the globe and discover amazing animals and cultures. In its first seas on, Into the Wild won an Emmy for Outstanding Children’s Series. — G.G.
