Join us each week for UNTAMED as Ed Clark, the staff of the Wildlife Center of Virginia, and special guests discuss the issues facing wildlife and what we can do to make a difference. Premiering on Thursday, May 21 at 8:00 p.m. on VPM PBS broadcast and Facebook Live on the VPM, Wildlife Center of Virginia and Science Matters Facebook pages.

UNTAMED is hosted by Ed Clark, President and Co-Founder of The Wildlife Center of Virginia, one of the world's leading teaching and research hospitals for wildlife and conservation medicine. In the series, Clark takes us behind the scenes where diagnosing and treating the injuries of its patients is just the beginning of the Center’s investigative and conservation work. The team of wildlife rehabilitators and veterinarians strives to identify and address the threats and hazards that cause harm to wildlife in the first place—issues ranging from human activities to environmental contamination to emerging wildlife disease.

 

This season of UNTAMED looks at the perilous world of wildlife, as seen through the eyes of the patients of the Wildlife Center of Virginia, and explores issues at the intersection of human, animal, and environmental health.  "We now know that it's impossible to separate considerations of the environment from human health and from animal health. It's all one health," shares Clark. The series will explore topics that include lead toxicity in animals, keeping cats indoors, the impact of litter on wildlife, and how to set up a safe backyard habitat.

Join us for season two of UNTAMED where you’ll meet wildlife professionals who are on the cutting edge of wildlife veterinary medicine around the world and who use the latest medical technology in their research and treatments.
