Join Eli Weiss this week with a myriad of guests discussing pertinent topics of conservation in sense of Rhino horm, wildlife, and with many experts such as Lorinda Hern, Rhino Rescue Project: innovators of horn infusion; Loraine Liebenberg, Save Our Rhino: the first and largest comprehensive rhino social media hub; journalist Jamie Joseph Saving the Wild on corruption, politics, power and crime impacts the legal justice system; and Damien Mander, IAPF! What such great experts to have on our program in such a time of crisis, right?!? We will discuss CITES CoP17 and how CITES Pro and anti- trade stakeholders of politicians, breeders, conservationists, scientists, and NGOs riding are on the decisions… We as a people need to come together as a collective species and right what has been wrong for over a century.
Ecosystems And Biodiversity Consist of Individuals Not Just Concepts, with Dr. Ian Redmond By Eli Weiss
Ian Redmond says, âI am a naturalist by birth, a biologist by training, and a conservationist by necessity. But conservation for me isnât just about saving species. On a larger scale, the planet needs us to save functioning eco-systems; on a smaller scale, we must also recognize that species are made up of individual animals. For me, it became personal when I had the privilege of getting to know individual wild animals in the wild… I can truthfully say that some of my best friends are gorillas, and I care passionately about them and the future of all life on Earth.” His career shifted from research to conservationist when one of his subjects was killed. His work on behalf of animals was recognized in 1996 when presented with PAWS Humane Achievement Award, and appointed O.B.E. in 2006 at the Queenâs Birthday Honours.
Amelia Kinkade is one of the world’s most renowned animal communicators. In 2002, she was invited to Buckingham Palace to work with Queen Elizabeth II’s cavalry and Prince Charles’ hunting horses. Amelia has been the focus of hundreds of articles with world-wide circulation, including The New York Times. In addition to television programs, like The View, she was the subject of a BBC documentary showing her work with elephants. This touches on her true passion, which is leading her Sacred Harmony Safaris in Africa and assisting organizations that rescue elephants, lions, rhinos and more. Amelia is the author of several books on animal communication, including Whispers from the Wild: Listening to Voices from the Animal Kingdom, as well as Straight from the Horseâs Mouth and The Language of Miracles.
The founder of Ark Angel Society and The Language of Miracles Institute online, she has devoted her life to using her gifts to communicate with animals. Visit her at www.ameliakinkade.com
Most of us think of life in hierarchical terms with human beings sitting at the top. Are you thinking: well, of course; we’re the most intelligent and the most civilized? If so, I want to challenge your thinking. Just suppose we are all pieces of a puzzle and the gifts of every animate being and inanimate object are needed in order to have true peace on earth? What if each species has specific information, wisdom and ways of experiencing the world that when brought together would create wholeness? What if we need to learn how to hear, feel and see every being and everything in order to be truly alive?
If each of us does have a piece of the puzzle (or is a piece of the puzzle), we must respect each other and communicate with each other in order to bring all of the pieces together. Just a thought. I have seen and experienced enough in this world to question everything. Please join us Thursday to hear the messages Amelia has gotten from the animals and to learn how to hear them yourself.
So many critical efforts are happening right now! The CITES meeting in Bangkok, Thailand may well decide the future for elephants and rhinos around the world. The US. Wildlife Services are under fire for unethical killing of our wildlife- both endangered and non-targeted species. The USFW is working hard to keep up with the Environmental Protection Act and government policies, and we are facing global biodiversity tipping points everywhere we look. Our policies and politics and our everday choices do make a difference, both here at home and around the world. Despite all this, there is Hope, and itâs right beneath our feet – we just need to focus by each of us taking some small actions in our everyday lives to protect the future that our ancestors left to us and which we will leave to our children.
Wouldnât it be great if todayâs headlines were : Itâs okay. We can all come out now! the Extinction and Global crises are over, and Weâve Won! We donât have to worry about environmental collapse or losing our polar bears and elephants, and our world turning into one big corporate machine, because humanity came to its senses the other day – we all pulled together and turned our wild world around! Each of us one day said to the other, wellâ¦ hereâs what I did today, and Iâm going to do it every day from now on, and it caught on.
Loving You to Pieces- Join Our Wild World Talk Radio with Dex Kotze and Pippa Cobb Hankinson discussing the illegal wildlife trade. Just a few months earlier, in Kenya, thousands of poached animal skins were added to the ivory flames. We are losing our wildlife to illegal trade and insatiable demand. No matter which way you look at the economics, the demand outnumbers the supply as countless animal parts destined for foreign markets to be turned into jackets, handbags, boots, and wall hangings. Africa’s wildlife is being pillaged to supply insatiable demands in the east and the west.
Join Eli Weiss with Ron Orenstein for Part 2 where we discuss ivory bans, CITES, and how we can affect the future for wildlife. We Humans have been the dominant species on this planet for thousands of years and just in the past 40 or so years, we are seeing the most significant climate change in centuries, species disappearing in the blink of an eye, and the ever on-going human to human conflict. All resulting in the death of this planet we al call home. WE CAN SAVE WILDLIFE. WE CAN SAVE OURSELVES. we just have to try.. Tune in NOW!!
Join Eli Weiss this week with Ron Orenstein, participant and Observer at CITES since 1987, and author of eleven books on science and nature. There has been a lot of discussion on the outcome of COP 17-so I thought I would look to an expert source to get the best understanding of how we can move forward within the framework we have . In Part One We delve in to the intricacies of CITES, what it is, what it can do, what it can’t do what we can expect it to do!
After such tremendous shifts in 2016 from the IUCN, to CITES, and to the US Presidential election… Now What? Tune in with Eli Weiss on Our Wild World Talk Radio as we go back to 2012 and hold the cards to the future. Weâre on the razors edge of what we choose to implement good or bad.
Decades of data tells us our world is quickly sliding past tipping points to points of no return. In just the last decade viable populations across the board have or are disappearing. That we not reaching global sustainable development and environmental goals compatible and conducive to the continuance of life as we know it. We must take action now to implement multilayered solutions, options and alternatives. The decisions of trade in endangered flora and fauna is CITES. CoP17 is happening right now. So what is CITES? How will the decisions made there affect life as we know it? To better understand what is at stake, today we have Nick Lynch and Tim Gorski,two of a team of four WildiZe Observers to CITES reporting direct from Johannesburg.
