Peter Gros has nearly 30 years of field experience with wildlife. He is a frequent lecturer on conservation and preservation at universities, zoos, theaters, and nature and science centers around the nation. His goal is to share his passion for the natural world with young people across the planet, inspiring them to protect animals both locally and globally. Gros says we need to continue to deliver a powerful message about how each of us can make a daily difference in preserving our natural world. It is possible to use our natural resources in a sustainable manner. We simply need to educate our nation’s youth about the importance of wildlife conservation. Peter’s life is dedicated to inspiring young people to care about wildlife and wild places. He continues to be a champion for the natural world.
The original Mutual of Omaha’s Wild Kingdom series — a program honored with 41 major awards, including four Emmy Awards and an endorsement by the National PTA for television programming recommended for family viewing — was one of the best known and longest-running series on nature and the animal world.
