Both Jack Hanna and SeaWorld Orlando are known for their animal expertise and conservation work, so it's fitting that Jungle Jack kicked off Wild Days at the park. As you can see in the slideshow accompanying this article, he brought an amazing parade of animals out onto the stage. From big cats to lemurs to camels to warthogs, it was quite a menagerie.

Wild Days runs each weekend in January from the 11th to the 26th. Jack Hanna started things off, and the second weekend will focus on rescue work. If you're a penguin lover, come out for the final weekend and learn about your favorite frigid birds. If you buy a Fun Card during Wild Days, you get a second one free, and the cards provide admission to SeaWorld Orlando for the rest of the year.

Most people think of marine mammals and aquatic rescues when they think of the park, but SeaWorld Parks and Entertainment encompasses a lot more. They have a wide variety of animals at Busch Gardens Tampa and are doing important work to help endangered creatures like cheetahs, rhinos, and many more. Jack Hanna talked about conservation efforts and the many successes to which zoos and animal parks have contributed in replenishing vanishing species.

Even if you can't come out for Wild Days, you can catch "Shamu Up Close" any time until Shamu Stadium re-opens in the spring after some renovation work. Jump to this article to see what that's all about. Want to learn more about the park's animal rescue? Go to this article.
