Description: “Nature” Nick Jacinto is one of the most well-known animal handlers in the New York tri-state area. He and his animals have appeared on numerous TV shows and public events throughout the area. His TV credits include The Martha Stewart Show, The Wendy Williams Show, Petkeeping with Marc Morrone, and Good Morning America. Nick completed his undergraduate degrees in Early Childhood Education, Special Education, and Speech Communications at St. Joseph’s College in Patchogue, NY. In addition to being a certified teacher, he is also one of the few animal handlers in New York State who currently holds six permits from New York State Department of Environmental Conservation which allow him to showcase many rare and unusual exotic animals. The animals used in Nature Nick’s programs are either former zoo animals who were injured and could not be placed back on exhibit or confiscated exotic pets. His shows are fast-paced, originally scripted and interspersed with his own brand of humor. Each show features 10-12 animals from all corners of the world including, but not limited to, kangaroos, monkeys, alligators, gigantic snakes, owls and falcons. July 1-July 31, 2013.
