WILD TIME turns 6 this month!! We premiered on February 15th 2008 on The Digital Hub FM (sadly no longer in existence) in Dublin / Ireland. Within weeks we changed from an animal welfare show to an animal rights show. Check our our humble beginnings HERE .
Six years on the world is still a very sad and violent world for many animals around the globe. This is what we've got for you this month:
05.02.2014 Animal Mutilation - in conversation with Margie Kay Animal mutilation cases are not new and have been reported for a very long time, almost always linked to sightings of UFO's and/or strange military air planes. But what exactly is happening to these animals and do we know why and who is behind it all?
12.02.2014 Cruelty Free X-mas fayre - in December 2013 WILD TIME went to the cruelty free x-mas fayre in Birmingham where we talked to many organisations from Sea Shepherd to 'Projet Primates', the latter being a more in-depth guest on a future show of ours.
19.02.2014 Projet Primates - Estelle Raballand from Projet Primates tells us all about their efforts to save chimpanzees in Africa.
26.02.2014 Live Exports in Ireland and stray dogs in Romania - after a 16-year-ban live exports came back to the Republic of Ireland in 2012 with a vengeance. In 2013 over 200 000 animals were shipped to their deaths all over the globe from Irish soil. Laura Broxson from the National Animal Rights Association, NARA for short, who has been on the show numerous times and is always a great and compassionate guest to have on the show, fills us in about how to fight the live export industry and all the difficulties that this entails.
We are also covering the topic of the stray dog killings in Romania again as we talk to Robert Smith whose group is now targeting the European commission asking them firmly to finally get involved in supporting the very successful trap-neuter-release scheme and exchange, thereby abandoning and outlawing the cruel killings of the stray dogs in Romania.

WILD TIME starts of the new year with an amazing variety of topics:
08.01.2014 Health special - The new year starts with a health special. We truly believe that you can't loom after anyone unless you look after yourself first. To kick-start the new year we talk to personal trainer Mikey Spice from BODYSHARP (pictured above) about how to get back into fitness. Furthermore Sylvia Chandler, founder of the famous ZEN shop in Birmingham, will tell us all about the healing powers and health benefit of urine.
15..01.2014 Ending vivisection - animal tests are cruel, inconclusive and ultimately a relic from the past that has to stop. WILD TIME spoke to Geoffrey Deckers about the European organisation that tries to end vivisection.
22.01.2014 Bikers 4 Orcas - loud, leather-lunged bikers are the last thing people expect to make some noise for cetaceans, yet here they are. Wild Time's Thomas Janak talks to biker Vincent Lesner from 'Bikers 4 Orcas' about their campaigns.
29.01.2014 Save the Maui dolphins - Earthrace new Zealand's Paul Moss tells us all about the plight of the Maui dolphins, whose times could run out soon as there are only 55 left!

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 and an interview with multi-award wining director Tim Gorski.
