Jack Benson

I am an 11th grade student from Chicago, Illinois. I aspire to be a zookeeper when I’m older. I care deeply about the natural ecosystems in the world and strive to make a difference in conservation. I’ve grown up visiting my local parks and wildlife preserves and have obtained an appreciation for the wildlife I live nearby. I’ve worked in Lincoln Park Zoo’s teen programs to educate others about how they can make a difference in urban nature environments.
