The World Association of Zoos and Aquariums (WAZA) would have the power to end the cruel drive hunts in the Japanese fishing village of Taiji. WAZA already condemned the drive hunt methods as early as 2004, yet, to date, there is still no binding initiative by WAZA to end the hunts.
WILD TIME talked to activist Daniel Oliver Jost about a protest that will be happening on March 28th 2014 in front of the WAZA headquarters in Switzerland. Ric O'Berry will also be attending.

In September 2013 WILD TIME spoke with Cee4life's Sybelle Foxcroft about the neglect of and cruelty to the animals who have to call Surabaya Zoo their home. Sybelle hasn't given up on the animals there and recently went back offering aid (again) to the zoo but has been rejected by the mayor of Surabaya. What exactly is going on at the zoo, why is the situation so tense and is there anything that can be done about it? Not too long ago a lioness was found hung in her cage, apparently by members or a member of staff. Sybelle believes that this happened to send a warning to all those who fight for a better life for the animals at the zoo. Don't miss this - listen and share widely
