October 2012 Schedule
October 8th 2012 - There are only 55 Maui dolphins left! Wild Time talks to Scott Bowman, campaign manager for Earthrace New Zealand about the threats to the dolphins. On this episode we will also revisit Egypt as we will be talking with activist Dina Zufklicar about the 7 dreadful governmental zoos and more.
And that's not all! In August Wild Time went to Wolverhampton to record at a peaceful protest against BSL (Bree Specific Legislation). The law is in effect since August 1991 and just does not seem to work.
It furthermore targets many dogs that are well behaved and kind by nature.
Many people talked to Thomas about their fears and feelings.
October 15th 2012 - There are only about 20 - 30 Amur leopards left in the wild yet, as reported by the New York Times in August, the Copenhagen zoo recently euthanised two healthy two year old Amur's, that could have lived out their lifes someplace else, somewhere where they would have been welcomed. We talked to Lucy Snowleopard about this case, zoos and more. Wild Time also recently talked to Julie Simenson from the Leicestershire Wildlife Hospital, which has been raied by thieves who stole cages in the amount of nearly £ 30 000 and killed animals in the process. Lastly, for the very first time in the history of Wild Time, an activist from Israel tells Thomas about the Mazor Farm where primates are being kept and more,
October 22nd 2012 - Steve Hindi from "Shark" will talk us through the cruelty and practises of Rodeos and tell us why Rodeos have nothing to do with the 'old West'.
Later in the program we will be highlighting a campaign that deals directly with the apparent inability of social media page FACEBOOK to police its sites as many pages on there are outright promoting violence and sex. All will be revealed. Make sure not to miss us.
October 29th 2012 - a very different WILD TIME episode is coming your way: With over 300 shows under our belt and having covered issues from 41 countries, we thought we'd bring you music, both traditional and pop, from some of the countries we have covered. Music is a good start to appreciate different cultures and sensitivities and it is also entertaining - so, why not, eh?
