Animal Television Pioneer & Wild Kingdom Ambassador Educating Families on Conservation & Wildlife

SEATTLE, Sept. 14, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Peter Gros, for over four decades, has entertained, educated, and enlightened millions of people with his major contributions to promoting wildlife conservation and fostering a greater appreciation for animals, through his work in television, park management, and now as a global ambassador.  He is touring America to inspire a new generation to see the beauty of nature, the importance of conservation, and appreciate ecotourism.

One of the last pioneers of television wildlife programs, Gros, who first starred on Mutual of Omaha's Wild Kingdom in 1986, has been charged, clawed, kicked, bitten, gnawed, and knocked senseless by the wild animals he has dedicated his life to protecting. His work helped bring a part of the unknown, natural world ? the "wild kingdom" ? into the living rooms of others, shedding misconceptions about that world while inspiring one's love for all animals and the precious planet.

Gros, has appeared with legendary TV personalities that include Johnny Carson, Jay Leno, Larry King, and Kelly Ripa. The wildlife expert often shares fascinating stories while offering useful tips on how one can embrace nature and the wildlife in their own backyard. He supplies positive insights into successful conservation projects and enjoys highlighting which species have been removed from the endangered list.

A legend in his field, Gros engages audiences with amazing stories about close-up encounters with danger. He also dazzles people with the presentation of in-studio/on-stage wildlife, showing the spectacular power of these beautiful creatures while providing interesting and useful facts.  You can see him in action at www.petergros.com.

His unexpected adventures have taken him to nearly 50 countries, where he experienced some wild times, including:

Gros continues his life dedicated to working with exotic, often dangerous wild animals by touring the nation with both enlivening and educational presentations. Today, he is Mutual of Omaha's wildlife ambassador.

"We need to continue to deliver a message to all about how each of us can make a daily difference in preserving our natural world," concludes Gros.
