Last weekend, Simas & Associates, Ltd. and Cal Poly Arts sponsored Peter Gros from the Original Mutual of Omaha’s “Wild Kingdom.”
“Mutual of Omaha’s ‘Wild Kingdom’” on Animal Planet was one of the most well-known and longest-running wildlife series on television, winning 41 Emmys. An animal expert in his own right, Mr. Gros is well known for his shows in Africa with lions and cheetahs; white sharks in Australia; rhinos in a Nepal; polar bears and grizzly bears in Alaska, and crocodiles in Costa Rica, just to name a few. He is a frequent guest on “Live with Kelly” and numerous other national morning and late night shows, with his animal ambassadors educating with humor and sharing his love for animals. Mr. Gros has also had the privilege of presenting events twice at the White House.
Mr. Gros’s show was a live, multimedia stage production, filled with exotic animals, adventure discussions and hilarious bloopers from past shows. Some lucky members of the audience even got to join in the fun on stage!
The show was at the at the beautiful Christopher Cohan Performing Arts Center.
