Just in - Animal Planet’s Jeff Corwin to speak at Xavier

Xavier University has just announced that Emmy-winner Jeff Corwin will give a presentation on Wednesday, February 20 in connection with his latest CNN documentary, entitled Planet in Peril: Environmental Threats of the 21st Century. He will speak from 7 - 9 pm in the Cintas Center Banquet Room. His talk will be followed by a book signing. The event is free and open to the public.

Corwin, host of The Jeff Corwin Experience on Animal Planet, has been working for the conservation of endangered species and ecosystems around the world since he was a teenager. Planet in Peril takes viewers on an around-the-world examination of our changing environment and has contributed to the spread of knowledge about global warming, animal extinction, and dangerous practices that are negatively affecting our planet.
