Beloved animal expert Jack Hanna is coming to The Whiting in Flint on May 1, 2015 for a special performance of Into the Wild Live.
*Spend an evening being introduced to live animals like baby cheetahs, kangaroos, baby tigers, penguins, and many more. In this live show, prepare to be fascinated as Jungle Jack takes you into the wild with a spectacular array of incredible animals. Jack will also share humorous stories and amazing footage from his adventures all around the world from Africa, to the Amazon, to Antarctica and beyond. He will also inspire with his passion and dedication to wildlife conservation.
Recognized around the country as America’s favorite zookeeper, Jack has made countless television appearances on shows such as Good Morning America, Ellen, and The Late Show with David Letterman where he has made nearly 100 appearances. In 2013, Jack celebrated his 35th “Hanna-versary” as Director Emeritus with the Columbus Zoo and Good Morning America celebrated their 30 year relationship with Jack with a series of special segments.
In 1993, Jack became the host of Jack Hanna’s Animal Adventures, a nationally syndicated television series which ran for over ten years. In October 2007, his current tv series, Jack Hanna’s Into the Wild, was born. This unscripted and action-packed series shows Jack and his family as they explore the corners of the globe and discover amazing animals and cultures. Jack Hanna’s Into the Wild is the recipient of three Emmy Awards, winning in the category of Outstanding Children’s Series in 2008, 2012 and 2013.
His second and newest TV show, Jack Hanna’s Wild Countdown, airs on Saturday mornings around the country on ABC. Wild Countdown features some of Jack’s favorite experiences with the world’s rarest, most endearing, and fascinating animals. You’ll even get to see his base camp at the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium.
Both television series exist because of Jack’s longstanding partnerships with Nationwide Insurance and the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium whom Jack has worked with for decades to protect and spread the word about wildlife conservation. Visit www.jackhanna.com for more info.
