Through his two TV shows and late-night TV talk show appearances, Jack Hanna is a familiar name among wildlife lovers and the zoo community. The Director Emeritus of the Columbus Zoo is coming to Tucson in January for "Jack Hanna's Into the Wild Live," presented in partnership with Reid Park Zoo. Tickets for the Jan. 7 show at the Fox Theatre are available online.
Hanna was in Tucson last year to release bighorn sheep into the Santa Catalina Mountains and record footage at the Zoo for his TV show. At that visit, Hanna took some time out of his schedule to speak with Tucson 12 about the great work being done at Tucson's zoo, while also discussing the financial impact and quality of life that zoos bring to their communities.
