Jack Hanna Brings the Wild to Cedarville

by Public Relations Office—Cedarville, Ohio

The Greene County Public Library is sponsoring the most well-known zoo director in history, Jack Hanna, at Cedarville University. Hanna will present his show, “Go Wild With Jack Hanna,” on Saturday, Nov. 22, at 3 p.m.

The Greene County Public Library is coordinating “Go Wild” as a community event to encourage wildlife education and conservation. Advance tickets are sold at the library branches, at the Stevens Student Center Information Desk, and online at www.greenelibrary.info.

For the program, Hanna will be doing what he does best - showing and interacting with animals. From a young age, he had a passion for wildlife. “I got my first job when I was 11 working for our family veterinarian,” says Hanna. From there he went on to be zookeeper for several zoos in Florida until he landed his career-defining position as zookeeper for the Columbus Zoo (Ohio).

Hanna has made appearances on “The Late Show With David Letterman,” “Larry King Live,” “Good Morning America” and “Entertainment Tonight.” He has also enjoyed hosting his own shows, “Jack Hanna’s Animal Adventures” and “Jack Hanna’s Into the Wild.” Yet, Hanna remains focused on educating people across the nation about animals.

After his show at Cedarville, Hanna will sell and sign copies of his two newest books, “Passport into the Wild” and “Jungle Jack: My Wild Life.”
