Recognized around the country as America’s favorite zookeeper, 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.

Hanna has made countless television appearances on shows such as "Good Morning America," "Larry King Live," "The Ellen DeGeneres Show," and the "Late Show with David Letterman." He has created three of his own nationally syndicated television programs: "Jack Hanna’s Animal Adventures," "Jack Hanna’s Into the Wild," and most recently "Jack Hanna’s Wild Countdown."

Author of ten books, Hanna's timeless tales continue to captivate audiences of every generation. His most recent release is a new book in his children’s series, "Passport Into the Wild." This book allows readers to travel by his side across all seven continents to explore fascinating cultures and animals.
