Jeff Corwin spreads conservation message to Iowans

DUBUQUE (KWWL) -- Conservation and environmental protection is the message one television star is sending to eastern Iowans.

Animal Planet's Jeff Corwin spoke Sunday at Clarke College in Dubuque.  Corwin hosts 'The Jeff Corwin Experience' on Animal Planet.

More than two thousand people came to see the animals he brought along, and hear him speak on environmental issues.

"We've reached a critical period when it comes to the conservation of our natural resources and we all now have a great responsibility to be good stewards," said Jeff Corwin.

Corwin says protecing the rainforest is critical, because 40% of medicines used today are found in the rainforest.
