October 2013 Schedule

In October we’re taking a long, hard and in-depth look at the link between animal abuse and human abuse. You may be shocked to learn just how much of a link there is. WILD TIME has talked to three people who have researched this for years, namely Malcolm Plant, Professor Philip Tedeschi and Professpr Eleonora – Gullone. Other topics this month: The Vegan Information Project (VIP) in Dublin/Ireland and the plight of the nearly extinct fire salamanders in Holland.

We also welcome back Roger yates who tells us all about the "VIP", Vegan Information Project", which gains momentum over in the Irish capitol city of Dublin.

15.10.2013 Romania's dogs need help -Following the death of a 4-year-old boy, supposedly through a stray dog, Romania is on a rampage to kill every stray dog in the country. Stray dogs have long been a big issue in Romania and many animal rights groups in Romania and elsewhere have criticized the cruel treatment of animals there..WILD TIME’s Thomas Janak talked to Vlad Dumitrescu, a civil engeneer in Bucarest, who has a very sensible view of his countries’ current actions against dogs.The conversation touches on many things including hysteria, corruption and possible solutions. It also shows how divided the country is and how many people in Romania do care about the stray dogs and are doing a lot to help. Help also comes from further afield. Wild Time talks to Izza Siebert from “Gegen Tierquaelerei” who hails from Germany. Izza and others of her group are currently organizing numerous trips to Bucharest to not only feed many of the dogs there but also to get some of them out of Romania and into new homes in Germany, Austria and Switzerland.

She also tells us about the many difficulties helpers are facing and they also need financial support in order to rescue and feed dogs.

22.10.2013 Save the fire salamanders - Expert Matt Ellerbeck tells us all about the virus BS and other reasons responsible for shrinking the fire salamanders population to a mere 4% in Holland.

03.09.2013 Blackfish is the new documentary by Gabriela Cowperthwaite that examines the death of Sea World trainer Dawn Brencheau and the life of Tilikum, the killer whale, who has been involved in three deaths. The film asks the questions: Should we continue to keep these intelligent animals in captivity any longer, especially since there are absolutely zero reports of incidents between killer whales and humans in the wild. We talked to Gabriela about the documentary and also talked to people who have seen the film.

10.09.2013 Freedom Blue - is a project aiming at the education of people with regards to cetacians. Freedom Blue is also a music project that uses art to highlight the issue. Len Varley (who has been on WILD TIME before) talks to us about the project.

24.09.2013 Tim Gorski -  "How I became an elephant" is just one of the many documentaries of independent film maker Tim Gorski. Tim's documentary about Sea Shepherd gave rise to the now famous TV show "Whale Wars" and WILD TIME talked to Tim at length about his films, experiences and views.

MARCH 2013 schedule

March will be another exciting month !!

04.03.2013 WILD TIME in conversation with Anthony Marr from the Vancouver Animal Defence League.The League currently fights for the abandonment of Shark fins and this topic was covered here in some detail. But that’s not where it ends at all as the conversation also touched on important issues like global warming, the illegal wildlife trade, overpopulation an racism in the animal rights movement. Tonight we will also talk about netting and the threat it causes to pigeons and other birds. After all, netting seems by far the most effective method to keep pigeons and other birds from resting on buildings. Truth is that many pigeons get trapped in the nets and badly injure themselves or die a slow and agonising death virtually undetected by anyone. Luckily there are groups and people like Sidney Barret who highlight the plight of the pigeons and who want the netting reviewed as a method and periodically checked for weaknesses that allow birds to get entangled and trapped in the first place.  

11.03.2013 “Cee4life” dirctor Sybelle Foxcroft is back on WILD TIME RADIO to talk about their work. Sybelle gave us an update on the tiger temple in Thailand and highlighted a  non-functioning state-run zoo in Nigeria where animals are starving to death.

18.03.2013 In the first hour of tonight’s show we get all spiritual (again) as we talk with spiritual healer Alison Ward whose aim in life is to help people find their life’s purpose and live happily ever after. This is an in-depth conversation about the power of overcoming hardship and transforming pain into positive energy and happiness. In the second hour of today's show we will talk to Diane Rowles from the Rudozeem street dog rescue in Bulgaria about their important work and challenges.

25.03.2013 Wild Time talks to Sylvia Vale a.k.a. “Vegan Ninja Bunny” at length about her youtube channel aimed at educating people about the vegan lifestyle. Sylvia tells us all about being a fruitarian and raw food vegan.
