Untamed Compendium

Starting May 2 and running for 13 weeks, Untamed looks at the wild and often perilous world of wildlife, as seen through the eyes of the patients of the Wildlife Center of Virginia. These episodes offer an unprecedented look at the work of the Wildlife Center and each has a unique focus – there are episodes on the Center’s work with Bald Eagles, opossums, snakes, owls, and more. 

The episodes air each Thursday at 8:00 p.m. on local PBS affiliate WVPT, and at 9:00 p.m. on WCVE (Richmond) and WHTJ (Charlottesville).  Each episode will also stream live on the Center's Facebook page and WVPT's YouTube channel at 9:00 p.m. Eastern. 

This online compendium offers a library of materials that support each episode of Untamed, including patient stories and videos, additional learning resources, and worksheets and activities for students who are watching Untamed as a part of classroom learning on biology, natural history, and the environment.

Each episode's companion guide will be posted the Friday morning after the episode airs.
