Wild Time host Thomas Janak at Rhubarb Radio

September, 14th 2011 – The first Wild Time show on Rhubarb Radio talks to HOPE founder Anthony Marr about animal rights, climate change and overpopulation among other things.

Anthony Marr has a degree in physics and is the author of 2 books (OMNI-SCIENCE and the Human Destiny, 2003; Homo Sapiens! SAVE YOUR EARTH!!, 2008).

A long time anti-hunting activist, he led an anti-hunting campaign in Canada which necessitated him to debate 100 hunters at time over 40 times, to build a volunteer team of 1800. A wildlife preservationist since 1995, his work in India garnered him the title of "Champion of the Bengal Tiger" in the award-winning TV-documentary series "Champions of the Wild" aired on Discovery Channel and Animal Planet in 20 countries. Anthony has conducted 7 Compassion for Animals Road Expeditions (CARE tours) throughout the United States and Canada, each lasting 30-45 state in 4-7 months. He has conducted numerous high-profile campaigns against the seal and bear hunts in Canada, deer culls and sea lion exterminations in the United States.

In 1995-1996, he used media to force a law to clean up all Canadian Chinatowns of traditional Chinese medicines containing endangered species ingredients. He has been to India three times to work in 3 tiger reserves in India. He has been to Japan twice to help protect the whales and dolphins. In 1999, he founded Heal Our Planet Earth (HOPE). In 2009, he founded the Global Anti-Hunting Coalition (GAHC). He was recently honored with the title of "Best All Around Activist of 2010" by NIH. He was also honored at the 2010 Animal Rights National Conference with the prestigious Henry Spira Grassroots Activist Award "for his outstanding contribution in animal liberation."

The show also features an interview with Merit C. Merkus who is involved in spaying/neutering stray dogs in Sri Lanka via Canine Life Support

September, 21st 2011 – The Chinese Threat! While making it very, very clear that the very real threat of “the new China” to conservation and animal- as well as human life is NOT directed towards the common Chinese citizen, it is non the less crucial to talk facts about China and its impact on our planet.

Wild Time speaks to conservationist and undercover investigator Mary Perry who currently runs the Rainsong sanctuary in Costa Rica.

This intense conversation touches on quite a number of topics. To back up Mary’s claims and observations please feel free to check the links* below.
