Jack Hanna Net Worth and Salary: Jack Hanna is an American zookeeper and author who is the Director Emeritus of the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium. Jack Hanna has a net worth of $5 million dollars.

Jack Hanna was born January 2, 1947 in Knoxville, Tennessee where grew up on his father's farm outside Knoxville, and volunteered for the family veterinarian, Dr. Roberts, when he was 11. He majored in business and political science at Muskingum College in New Concord, Ohio, where he got in trouble for keeping ducks in his dorm room and a donkey in a shed behind his fraternity house. When he was offered the position at the Columbus Zoo in 1978 the grounds of the zoo were unkempt and the facilities run down. Hanna initially struck many as a "zealous" zoo director, often traveling around the zoo grounds after closing to personally pick up trash. He also realized the importance of increasing the profile of the Columbus Zoo in central Ohio to get more public support and funding. From 1981-83, Hanna hosted a local television program, "Hanna's Ark", which aired on the local CBS affiliate in Columbus. Hanna's live animal demonstrations on "Good Morning America" and both of David Letterman's talk show incarnations brought national attention to the Columbus Zoo as well as to Hanna himself. Over the course of Hanna's tenure as director, the zoo made the transition from cage-like enclosures to habitat environments, and the annual attendance of the Columbus Zoo increased by over 400% during this time. He helped the police track down several exotic animals that escaped from a private collector in 2011.
