Television star Betty White will help the Columbus Zoo launch their new exhibit this week.

On Thursday, White will join Jack Hanna for the kick-off ceremony for the Heart of Africa.

It will not be White's first trip to the zoo. She visited in 1979 and formed a friendship with Hanna.

White has dedicated her life to making this world a better place for animals and has been a longtime board member of the Los Angeles Zoo and Morris Animal Foundation.

The Heart of Africa will feature Camel Rides, Cheetah Runs, and Giraffe Feeding.
