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.
Join Eli Weiss this Monday with long time guest on Our Wild World Talk Radio Show and Lion conservationist, Dr. Pieter Kat with Lion Aid. On Nov 7th at 8 a.m. PT, Tune In as we discuss the #illegaltrade in endangered species more specifically #Lions. As time goes on we all notice and realize more and more that it is all about money and the politics within the realm of the Canned Hunting industry are becoming even more corrupt. But the ultimate price, will be the loss of the very definition of âwildnessâ. In the illegal wildlife trade, the fact that the value of an animal is only tallied upon its worth as a carcass or its parts shows that money will win the day.
Join Eli Weiss with Andi Rive on Monday Oct 31st as we discuss the Love Lions Alive Project and the work they do to help preserve one our planets apex predators from an industry that holds their demise in their hands.. On Our Wild World Talk Radio we’ve discussed the canned lion industry from all sides except one: The lions themselves. Today we talk about a true #Lions value, and that they are vital living beings with character and personality who deserve a life of dignity. Tune in Monday at 8 a.m. PT!!!
Join Eli Weiss this week with Chris Mercer discussing the Cop-OUT of CITES!!! There is a disturbing trend with far reaching consequences when wild life becomes, as my guest Chris Mercer calls it, Alternative Livestock and the general public is being misled…. The ruling of #Lions, #Elephants, and #Rhinos is not only shocking; it presents conservationists and active wildlife saver with a whole new challenge. New boundaries are being crossed, losses expanding, and the last frontier of wild life is under siege… If we do not choose to SEE, COMPREHEND, and ACCEPT what is going on in the world of wildlife, then our ecosystem will collapse and in turn we will collapse.
Join Eli Weiss with Drew Abrahamson & Paul Tully as we discuss CannedLion Farming.. With the recent and upsetting ruling on Lion conservation, the trade and Wildlife Crime will go on. We PEOPLE must stand up and #saveourwildlife from #Extinction and that is forever. Drew and Paul take us through the life cycle of captive lions vs. ‘reserves’ in a country where wildlife is completely fenced in- and how Captured In Africa Foundation and Captured In Africa – Exclusive Safaris raise awareness through #Tourism sector and schools, Tune in Monday at 8 a.m. PT on Oct 10th.
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.
Join Eli Weiss with our guest Lisa Hywood of The Tikki Hywood Trust. Tune is on Monday Oct 3rd at 8 a.m. as we discuss the plight of the pangolin, the world’s most trafficked mammal and what Zimbabweans and the world are doing about it. Over the past 15 years, Human greed has surpassed the capacity of what Zimbabwe can give and this coupled with economic distress, it has contributed to the plunder and decimation of their natural heritage.
Join Eli Weiss and Calvin Cottar in discussing new conservation models and strategies that are ripe for out of the box thinking to be responsive to the needs and shifts in both multi-use landscapes and various value systems. If wildlife has no value to the local private landowners that depend 100% on living off their land, then wildlife will not be considered as part of the economic equation of payment or solutions. Whether we like it or not, coexistence comes at a priceâ how we define âpriceâ, how itâs paid for and by whom, that is the topic Calvin and I discuss. Tune in on Monday, June 27th 8 a.m. PT!
