Jack Hanna's Animal Adventures is a nature documentary video/television series that ran in first-run syndication from 1993 to 2008, and remains in active distribution. The series was hosted by Jack Hanna, Director Emeritus of the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium. It is shown daily and weekly in syndication worldwide on numerous stations and networks, especially in the United States.
It is particularly popular in part because of Hanna's mainstream name recognition as an animal expert, but also because the show meets programming criteria for the U.S.'s federally mandated educational and informational requirements which all stations must follow. Because of this, the program is available for syndication up to five days per week, thus covering all but a half hour of the three-hour E/I mandate.
