Spring clean


Recycle Bank just off Ballyboden Road

The green island is a disgrace at times


Littering seems to get out of hand and it bothers me a lot. Nicole and I often clean the green spaces around our house and we would like to ask YOU to join in "the fun".

Many animals die from suffocation as they swallow our rubbish from plastic bags to can openers and it just has got to stop.

Please be responsible and educate others on the issue of littering.

WILD TIME is on next Friday (04.04.)with footage from a recent protest against fur. On April 11th a full length interview with wildlife - filmmaker Finn Van Gelderen will go out and on April 18th I am joined in the studio by reptile breeder Thomas McElherron.

And there is always more to come - please watch this space and listen in to WILD TIME every friday between 8p.m. - 9p.m.

DSPCA


I have just recently spent two days at the DSPCA on Mount Venus Road, where I saw first hand the brilliant work they're doing. The Dublin SPCA is the oldest Irish animal welfare organisation and has been established in 1840.

With a little luck the DSPCA will sit in with me on WILD TIME soon

Updates


WILD TIME host Thomas Janak just had a great 5-day run of overwhelming, mind-blowing and peace-bringing experiences during his first leg of an "Animal Spirit Medicine" Course he studies in the UK.

Naturally, Thomas visited places full of wild life such as the Bournemouth Aquarium. Currently some work goes into organising interviews with staff members of the aquarium, a woman that swam with dolphins and author and shamanic healer/teacher Simon Buxton, whose book "The Shamanic Way Of The Bee" is a fantastic piece of literature.

So far, nothing has been confirmed but watch this space for future announcements.

This coming friday Connor Kelleher from Batsprotection Ireland has his say on wild time as Thomas will bring you footage from a recent talk by Connor.

As we soon leap into April there is much more to come on wild time such as a fascinating conversation with wildlife filmmaker/photographer Finn Van Gelderen. Also Thomas McElheron, reptilebreeder, will join the wild time team in the studio soon.

All in all great shows lined up for all animal lovers of this earth.

WILD TIME this friday at 8p.m. on 94.3fm or www.digitalhubfm.com

Helena LeMahieu from the animal sanctuary ASH in Kiltegan, who had already been a guest on Thomas's social justice show IN-DEPTH last year, came in yesterday to talk about the issues she has to deal with on a daily basis, her ideas on spaying and neutering and the hope that one day legislation will meet the needs of Irish animals.
