The Bat: Extremely important yet extremely misunderstood

It is perhaps fair to say that most people's "education" about bats is limited to what they have heard and seen in horror movies. How important and beneficial bats are to human life is not really known to a wider audience.

Rescuing animals in the nick of time

Wild Time's Thomas Janak in conversation with Jenny Cranwell from "Nick Of Time", which was created primarily to help rehome animals that are in rescues throughout the UK.

Nick of time asks people who are looking for pets to consider going to a rescue, and not just the BIG rescues. Many small rescues are running just around the corner from you.

They also try to help people who are considering rehoming their pets to work out a way that they may be able to keep them.

But it doesn't end there. They are also helping rescues as they aim to help rescues by listing their animals on their site, searching to find people to rehome their animals too.

Finding people to fill in the roles you need;
Homecheckers, transporters, fosterers anything you need.


This piece will also be aired globally via on Thursday, June 7th 2012 from 10pm GMT

Hunters exposed - in conversation with Shannon Wright

Wild Time talked to animal rights activist Shannon Wright whose blog exposes hunting for what it is: an activity that brings suffering and death to innocent sentient beings. But Shannons blog is different in that it also emphasises on woman hunters and even contains a "most vile" countdown. It also touches on 'hunters vs.serial killers'.
