Special Guest: Jeff Corwin
Jeff Corwin shares his one-of-a kind perspective on wildlife conservation, empowering audiences to join the movement to save our natural world for future generations.
As the host of the Emmy Award-winning ABC wildlife adventure series “Ocean Mysteries with Jeff Corwin,” Jeff educates and entertains audiences with his knowledge and deep sense of caring about the natural world. During Jeff’s television career, he also hosted Animal Planet’s “The Jeff Corwin Experience” and “Corwin’s Quest,” along with a variety of popular television series on networks like Disney Channel, Discovery Channel, Travel Channel and Food Network. Jeff’s work on CNN’s critically-acclaimed “Planet in Peril” with Anderson Cooper and as a special science and the environment correspondent for NBC News has solidified his place as one of the world’s leading environmental journalists.
With a focus on awareness and education, Jeff draws on his world travels to enlighten with insights on the current state of environmental conservation efforts, emphasizing that the key to our own survival is the survival of the world’s creatures and ecosystems. He takes audiences on a global tour to witness firsthand the condition of the natural world, sharing a message of hope and humanity, and encouraging us all to play an active and positive role in helping save the Earth’s most threatened animals and natural resources.
