Untamed: New Series Premieres Tonight


Hosted by Ed Clark, Untamed takes you behind the scenes of the Wildlife Center of Virginia, where diagnosing and treating the injuries of its patients is just the beginning of the Center’s investigative and conservation work. The team also strives to identify and the address the threats and hazards that cause harm to wildlife in the first place—issues ranging from illegal human activities to environmental contamination to emerging wildlife disease.

Untamed looks at the perilous world of wildlife, as seen through the eyes of the patients of the Wildlife Center of Virginia. These patients range from playful black bear cubs and majestic bald eagles to hummingbirds, bats, and snakes. Each one of the Center’s patients provides a window on the environment, and unique insights into the challenges of life in the wild.

Watch Untamed; Black Bears May 2 at 8:00 p.m. on WVPT and at 9:00 p.m. on WCVE/WHTJ. Check listings for additional air-times.

In the first episode, Ed Clark and the staff of the Wildlife Center of Virginia show us what it takes to prepare orphaned bear cubs to be returned to the wild.
