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.
Join Eli Weiss and Kathy Alexander NOW as we discuss ways to invent a Better Future for all! Since right now is such a pivotal time in human history with so many changes and roadblocks hitting us, its important to take time and think about the societal, animal, and environmental components that makes us who we are and how we can find more effective ways to approach our planets problems. Tune in now!!!
Tune in and Join Eli Weiss NOW with Camilla Fox Founder and Executive Director of Project Coyote and Dr. Robert Crabtree who is a Scientific Advisory Board member as we discuss America’s predators. As we pay attention to the atrocities of wildlife cullings from around the world in Africa and Asia, we must take a step back and realize we have our own wildlife ecosystems to protect right here at home. We will touch base on the barbaric practices of overkilling our wildlife, especially the carnivores – coyotes, wolves, bobcats, and other animals under the mantel of managing human-carnivore conflict. Tune in to Our Wild World Talk Radio!!
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.
Economics play a huge part in illegal wildlife trade. When we understand how macroeconomics influence pricing and multi commodity ‘black market’ trade in illicit wildlife ‘products’- such as ivory and rhino horn, we have a better understand of how to shift our focus and efforts toward systematic wide shifts and change in combatting illegal wildlife crime and trade in wildlife and natural resources.

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.
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.
