"I have worked with Jack for over 20 years, so I know the kind of shows he produces, and this new venture, in high definition, is an exciting development in bringing young people an entertaining and different way to learn about animals from all over the world,� said Art Moore, Programming Vice President, WABC-TV.

This season Jack and his family go on location to South Africa to explore conservation efforts in the land of elephants, lions, rhinos and tigers. Along the way, Jack puts his wildlife skills to the test in Shamwari's Ranger Training School, protects rhinos from poachers, and cares for adorable orphaned animals that need a second chance at life. Jack travels to the Sanbona Wildlife Reserve, where rare white lions roam free, and introduces audiences to some of the special people working to protect elephants and cheetahs. And in Cape Town, Jack hits the beach to hang out with a breeding colony of African penguins and literally stops traffic to protect a troop of baboons.
