Each week Urban Zoo host Bill McBain welcomes vets, care-givers, researchers, spiritual leaders, suppliers, enforcement officers, pet-lovers and companions, etc., who share their stories and expertise.
There is cuteness, joy, practical advice, expert insight and probing into some uncomfortable and challenging corners of our relationship with animal life.
Biped-quadruped, carnivore-herbivore-omnivore-insectivore, invertebrate-vertebrate, pet-working or livestock, tame-feral, on wings-foot-hoof or fin: Peel is as bio-diverse as its’ people. We are a region where river valleys, woodland and farms bump up against ever expanding urban neighbourhoods.
Some animals thrive, others are threatened but together they comprise the rich bio heritage of Peel. The Urban Zoo examines and celebrates the depth and power of the animal-human bond and the many facets of our interrelationship with the creatures we share our lives with.
We want to hear your stories: are you a caregiver, owner, parent, supplier, veterinary health professional, or do you work or volunteer with a rescue group, shelter or rehabilitation centre? Or are you simply a lover of animals? The Urban Zoo would love to hear from you: your thoughts and your stories.
