Jack is Back: Going Wild for Wildlife
Featuring Jack Hanna at the Wayne County Fairgrounds
Cope Environmental Center (CEC) is excited to welcome Jack Hanna back to Richmond, Ind.. Going Wild for Wildlife, featuring Jack Hanna, makes its third appearance in the area as a community-wide program. In 2004, Jack brought his animal friends to the Kuhlman Center and shared his love and knowledge of the animal kingdom with the children and adults from Richmond and beyond. Now, Jack’s back for another exciting show at the Raper Center, Wayne County Fairgrounds, on Tuesday, May 21, 2019 at 7 p.m.
Jungle Jack Hanna explores the corners of the globe as one of the most respected animal ambassadors. His enthusiasm and “hands-on” approach to wildlife conservation has won him widespread acclaim as a conservationist, television personality, author and Director Emeritus of the Columbus Zoo and The Wilds.
Recognized as America’s favorite zookeeper, Jack has made countless television appearances since 1983 on shows such as Good Morning America, The Late Show with David Letterman, Larry King Live, The Late Late Show with James Corden, The View, and Fox News and CNN news programs.
Jack took his infectious energy to the airwaves by creating three nationally televised programs. Jack Hanna’s Animal Adventures ran for 10 years and is still currently in syndication. Most recently, the Columbus Zoo and Nationwide have partnered to sponsor the Emmy Award winning Jack Hanna’s Into the Wild and a show on ABC, Jack Hanna’s Wild Countdown.
Jack and his wife, Suzi, live in central Ohio and have three daughters and six grandchildren.
Cope is excited to reach a whole new generation of young nature lovers and conservationists with Jack’s program. Proceeds from this event will directly benefit CEC’s environmental education programs. Tickets go on sale March 18 for CEC members and March 25 for non-members. There will be an exclusive V.I.P Meet & Greet with Jack and a special animal friend at Cope Environmental Center before the show at 4 p.m. Limited availability. Light refreshments will be provided.
