Yesterday, Jack Hanna braved the wilds of Lafayette to teach kids about endangered species.
"Jungle Jack," the 59-year-old host of Animal Adventures with Jack Hanna, was the keynote speaker for Our Lady of Fatima School's bi-annual academic enrichment week. This year's theme, Fatima Journeys to the Animal Kingdom, taught pre-K through eighth graders about animals, their geographical habitats and the cultures with which they coexist.
Hanna showed wide-eyed students clips from his upcoming fall TV special on Rwanda's endangered mountain gorilla population before bringing live animals onto the stage.
