Ken's edited portrait

Ken Jones has won numerous awards during his nearly 50 year career as an environmental educator and organizer. In 2015,  the National Association of Environmental Professionals bestowed the National Environmental Excellence Award to Jones for both his creation of the International A-Team, and his conservation podcast, Jungle Deep. Jones, and his International A-Team, in that same year, received a Commendation from the head of the nation's Environmental Protection Agency, Gina McCarthy. In 2014, Dr. Jones was chosen as"One of the Next 100 extraordinary people who will change the world with the power of their ideas", by the business innovation group, One Billion Minds.

"Dr. Jones" is the producer and host of the rain forest conservation podcast, Jungle Deep."Dr. Jones" is the stage name given to Mr. Jones by thousands of school kids when they combined his jungle theme and his attire (resembling Indiana Jones) with his last name - thus Mr. Jones became Indiana's brother, Dr. Jones, who instead of the treasures of antiquity, valued the treasures of nature - the world's wildlife.

Jones, by his earlier award-winning experiences in Earth Day event management and his founding and operation of the Tropical Rainforest Museum, is an excellent choice as leader of this non-profit effort.   Jones has expertise in New Media - digital audio/video production and distribution, and social media promotion on the internet. He has produced an award-winning TV travel show and many podcasts.  His long-time commitment to environmental education, combined with his media knowledge and extensive experience having presented nearly one thousand school assemblies about conservation to school-age kids, presenting live exotic animals, makes him uniquely suited to launching and managing A-Team for Wildlife.
