Nonhuman Radio – Episode 20-11

Today’s show features special guest Allen Myers, Festival Director for the Earth Day Film Fest, which is happening this week March 12-19, 2020.

On Thursday March 12 – Watch out for “The Beaver Believers” by Sarah Koenigsberg, which screens on March 12 at The Gateway Science Museum. Free to the public, but registration highly suggested.

Theme: “Animals on the Edge” — Sunday March 15th – Pageant Theater – 1pm
“Stekenjokk and the Guardian of the Eggs,” a short documentary about egg poaching in a Swedish nature reserve, the criminal trade of egg collecting, and the humans who try to stand in the face of what is essentially organized nature crime.

“Queen Without Land,” a documentary of the four-year journey of a polar bear and her cubs and a Norwegian wildlife filmmaker — “this planet is home to all of us, can we afford to ignore it?”

Tune in or listen live online — every Wednesday from 5:30-6 pm on KZFR 90.1 FM.


QUOTE OF THE WEEK
‘It’s probable that most of the suffering and cruelty tied to the meat, dairy and egg industry arises from how the animals are raised rather than how they are killed.’
Erik Marcus, author of Meat Market

Chico Vegan Animal Place Tour

Please join Chico Vegan Meetup for a guided group tour of Animal Place on Saturday June 1, 2019. Afterwards we’ll enjoy a group potluck, talk about the animals we met, what we felt and learned, and how to do more good things for the animals. If you’ve never been to Animal Place, you’re in for a very special experience.

We’ll visit with some of the over 400 rescued farmed animals who call Animal Place home and learn about their history. Due to the virulent Newcastle Disease outbreak in southern California, the resident chickens, turkeys, and guinea fowl are quarantined for their safety and will not be accessible to the public.

The tour will last two hours and will entail a lot of walking on flat ground. The facility is wheelchair-accessible, although there are some rocky portions of the property.

You must wear long-pants and closed-toed shoes or boots (which Animal Place can provide). The property is shared with wildlife, including rattlesnakes. Closed-toed shoes also provide added protection when interacting directly with the large animals.

Children are welcome!

Visitor dogs are not permitted. This is for their safety and that of the animals. Please leave companion dogs at home.

The tour is free, but donations are gladly accepted.

Meet at the Chico Park and Ride at HWY 99 and HWY 32 (lot closest to 99) at 9:15 am. We will leave the park and ride by 9:30 am SHARP.
Saturday June 1, 2019
Park and Ride – 9:15am
Tour – 11am – 1pm
Potluck – 1pm – 2:30pm
