‘The Zoo next door’ – where tragedy and drama meet

Over three years ago,  Karla Munguia Colme
nero spoke to WILD TIME about the “Zoo Next Door” and her documentary of the same name, which you can view HERE.

She updated us about the situation in May 2012 (listen here) when things had gotten even worse.

Now, just a mere two weeks ago, the announcement came that the Zoo will be closed down and the animals will be confiscated and hopefully rehomed.

Sadly, this won’t be the case after all.

Karla joined us again for the latest in the never ending battle to give the animals in said Zoo some space and piece of mind.

Hong Kong's Dolphins need help


With only 61 Chinese White Dolphins left it seems incomprehensible that the Hong Kong government has sanctioned a third runway for their airport, knowing full well that the dolphins will be affected by this massive infrastructure change.

The dolphins are also at risk due to massive amounts of boats crossing through their territory.

WILD TIME spoke with independent activists Suzette Ackermann and Jaqueline Lee about the situation in Hong Kong.

It is time the Honk Kong government hears from YOU:

Hong Kong Government: enquiry@enb.gov.hk
Hong Kong Airport Authority : fvc@hkairport.com


Update: Although a petition was mentioned during the conversation, the Hong Kong Dolphin Conservation Society urges people at this point in time to write to the emails provided.

Protesting WAZA to end the drive hunts in Taiji / Japan

The World Association of Zoos and Aquariums (WAZA) would have the power to end the cruel drive hunts in the Japanese fishing village of Taiji. WAZA already condemned the drive hunt methods as early as 2004, yet, to date, there is still no binding initiative by WAZA to end the hunts.

WILD TIME talked to activist Daniel Oliver Jost about a protest that will be happening on March 28th 2014 in front of the WAZA headquarters in Switzerland. Ric O'Berry will also be attending.
