Peter Gros will be showing video highlights of his career with animals and talking about his mentor, Marlin Perkins. He will also be bringing along some animals!

Peter Gros has nearly 30 years of field experience with wildlife. In his former position as Director of Land Animals and Vice President at Marine World/Africa USA, he and his team established breeding programs for hundreds of endangered animals. He also developed a rehabilitation program for birds of prey, as well as the largest captive breeding colony of ostriches in the United States. He is a licensed U.S.D.A. exhibitor and a wildlife lecturer for the  Natural History Association, and a trustee for the Cheetah Conservation Fund.

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