Saturday, March 8 at 4 p.m.
$26 ages 12 and under/$37 ages 13+
- When a child sees these magnificent animals up close there’s an immediate connection and concern about wildlife and wild places. Peter Gros has nearly 30 years of field experience with captive wildlife. In his popular live presentations, Peter shares his exciting animal world, travel experiences and timeless tales. He highlights his many adventures with a mix of video clips and bloopers while introducing friendly exotic animals to audience members, and telling inspirational stories dealing with issues of conservation, travel, and wildlife filming. A Word About the Animals: The animal ambassadors appearing with Peter are licensed both state and federal and fully insured. The animals are hand raised on bottles or have been rescued so they are completely imprinted on people. When they’re not visiting theaters in fun filled educational presentations they’re visiting schools with students of all ages to help connect children to our Natural world. The hand raised animals ambassadors associate people with food rewards and affection. In other words, they are spoiled.
