Belize City, Wednesday, April 28, 2004 --From Monday April 26th through Monday May 10th, Belize hosts famous television personality Jack Hanna. Along with his producers and crew, Jack Hanna is making a much-anticipated trip to Belize to explore and film numerous wildlife preserves that he will then share with the millions of television viewers around the world who watch his popular show.
Jack Hanna's Animal Adventures is the longest-running and most-watched syndicated wildlife show in the world. It reaches 95% of U.S. television households every weekend and is viewed in over 60 countries worldwide. It’s a 30-
minute program that airs weekly at various times in various markets.

According to his producer, Mr. Hanna has always had Belize high on his list of places to visit because of its interesting wildlife and its commitment to conservation.

Mr. Hanna and his 6-member crew will make specific stops at the Community Baboon Sanctuary, Ian Anderson’s Caves Branch, the Green Iguana Project and the Chaa Creek butterfly farm in Cayo, the Manatee Project in Gales Point and then the Whale Shark Project in Placencia.

Jack Hanna, popular host of the hit television series, Jack Hanna's Animal Adventures, is one of America's most beloved naturalists and adventurers. Each week, Hanna takes millions of family viewers on exciting journeys to learn about animals and the places they live. Hanna began to receive national attention after he became Director of the rundown Columbus Zoo in Columbus, Ohio in 1978. He not only transformed the zoo into a model facility, but also through his media savvy, made the Columbus Zoo a household name. He is a regular guest on shows including "Good Morning America," "Larry King Live," "The Late Show With David Letterman," "Hollywood Squares" and "The Maury Povich Show." He also makes countless personal appearances and speeches throughout the U.S.

“We are extremely pleased to host Jack Hanna,” says Tracy Taegar Director of Tourism” “Belize is a model for wildlife preservation and eco-tourism and this television show presents a wonderful opportunity to highlight our pristine natural & Cultural resources to the global market”.

In addition, Bob Friel, Executive Editor for Caribbean Travel & Life, a high profile travel publication that reaches 150,000 North Americans, will accompany the Jack Hanna group for the dive portion of their trip to write a “behind the scenes” story, further advancing coverage of Belize.

Caribbean Travel & Life is written for the upscale traveler interested in vacationing in the Caribbean. Its contents include shopping, dining and lodging ideas; cover the arts and entertainment in the area, and offers suggestions on sights and locations to visit.

This particular feature is scheduled to run in the July/August issue of the magazine
