Jeff Corwin “exemplifies the power of what one person can accomplish in a positive way to improve our world,” says The Huffington Post. The Emmy®-winning Animal Planet host, author, and biologist speaks eloquently and entertainingly on the conservation of endangered species and ecosystems across the globe.  Through education and awareness, he believes these vital elements of our planet can be conserved for future generations.

An active conservationist, Corwin helped establish the Emerald Canopy Rainforest Foundation after visiting Belize for the first time in 1984. After receiving a master’s degree in wildlife conservation, Corwin went on to become the host and executive producer of The Jeff Corwin Experience and Corwin's Quest, airing on Animal Planet Network.

In 2009, Corwin hosted a documentary series called Feeling the Heat in a partnership with the conservationist group Defenders of Wildlife. As a board member of Defenders of Wildlife and a correspondent for NBC News, Corwin is actively involved in the recovery effort to save wildlife and the affected habitats as a result of the 2010 oil spill disaster in the Gulf of Mexico.

On March 22, 2007, while filming in Cambodia, Corwin was attacked by an elephant and walked away from the terrifying experience with a just a few minor injuries to his arm. He currently lives with his wife and daughter in Marshfield, Massachusetts.

Check out this Hot New Summer Game
BeanBagglz -- It's like "Cornhole on Steroids"

Introducing the World’s First Interchangeable Beanbag Toss – a Modern Reinvention of Classic Cornhole, with More Games than Ever Thought Possible!

The game is designed to bring new life and entertainment to everything from tailgating, to bars and frat parties, to family cookouts. BeanBagglz incorporates the popularity of traditional cornhole with poker, billiards, golf, football, baseball and many more sports and games making it the most fun and versatile beanbag toss system ever invented.



Creator Anton Riniti, who wears many hats as a serial entrepreneur, a U.S. billiards trick shot champion and award winning magician, felt it was time that one of America’s most popular games got even better. Instead of playing on the same surface over and over, Riniti has created the world's first interchangeable templates that adjust from adult themed games like betting and drinking games for college parties, to family and kids’ games - in seconds.

BeanBagglz, a 33-in-1 real-life gaming system #ad

Beanbagglz is available for pre-order on Kickstarter with early bird pricing starting at just $79. For more information, and to pre-order Beanbagglz click HERE



Beyond it’s 33 tossing game templates, the console also does double duty as a games table. Play chess, checkers or backgammon on one side and flip it over for a game of cards or dice. The surface can also be used for serving drinks and snacks to complete the party.

Approximately 3 feet by 2 feet by 5 feet, BeanBagglz is portable and mobile with 3 inch extra wide rubber wheels and reinforced handles to make transportation a breeze.

Additional features include:
15 built in storage compartments
Light-weight durable plastic
4 adjustable and removable locking legs
15 colorful bags
Works indoors and outdoors
Extremely easy to store
