Our environmental problems are becoming increasingly more dramatic. In the next 10-20 years, we can expect a gigantic extinction of animals and plants. The resulting mass death in fauna and flora will be the greatest the world has seen since the Mesozoic Era. On the other hand, we will need to feed eight billion people as a result of the population explosion seen over the last 30 years. There is a struggle between cross linking habitat protection as a guardian of the rest of nature and the intensive use of agriculture to feed mankind.










In addition to 170 countries around the world, Germany has committed itself to sustainability and the protection of all biodiversity, animals, plants and and important habitats (Rio Convention 1992). Additionally, the German "Animal Protection Law" ensures for the welfare of all kept animals.
