This is the fourth season of episodes of the TV show on (ERT) that highlights the meaningful connection between animal welfare and compassion.
"Tales for Tails" is a weekly one-hour program curated and presented by journalist Tasoula Eptakoili. The show narrates stories of animals and people, revealing unknown information about the fascinating world of animals through specials, reports, and interviews.
Cats and dogs, horses and parrots, bears and foxes, donkeys and turtles, migratory birds, and marine mammals pass in front of the camera of director Panagiotis Kountouras and become the protagonists of the show.
In each episode, people who offer protection and care to animals, from the unknown volunteers of animal welfare organizations to very famous people from various fields (arts, letters, politics, science), talk about their special relationship with the quadrupeds and unfold the emotions that this coexistence provokes.
Every story is different, but they all have something in common: the search for the essence of animal welfare and compassion.
In addition, the show's special collaborators provide us with simple but practical and useful tips on how to take care of our animal friends.
«Epirus - Bourazani Environmental Park - Anima Volunteers»
We travel to Epirus. We visit the northwestern tip of the prefecture of Ioannina next to Konitsa, where we discover an ark of biodiversity: the Bourazani Wildlife Park. A fenced forest area, which exceeds 490 acres and hosts five species of wild animals: European fallow deer - that is, the small deer that can be seen in Rhodes and Limnos - large red deer, such as those of Parnitha, Cretan wild goats, wild sheep and wild boar. All of these species live and reproduce freely. There are no cages, only supervision and care. As the founder and owner of the Bourazani Environmental Park, veterinarian Giorgos Tassos, informs us: "Nature teaches us simplicity, balance and harmony. As long as we respect and experience it." Next up, the show travels to Ioannina, to meet the volunteers of the association for the ethical treatment of animals Anima, who have rescued hundreds of strays that were slowly dying on the streets of the city.
