Extinction means forever …
Our environmental problems dramatically increase! During the following 10 – 20 years a giant loss of animal and plant species has to be expected. We have to realize, that the diversity of animals and plants on this earth will get stronger reduced than the massive Dying-Out of Fauna and Flora during the Earth-Middle-Ages. On the other hand we have to be able to feed 8 billion people in 30 years as a consequence of the explosion of human population. A struggling between the network of Biotope Protection as a green lung of the Rest-Nature and the intensive forms of Agricultural Use for feeding the humans is heavily going on. Germany and more than 170 countries worldwide did sign the Rio-Convention (1992) for the protection of Biodiversity. Besides that the German Animal Protection Law controls the keeping quality of wild and domestic animals.
What are we specially working for ?
We want to help giving Ancient Domestic Breeds a new home, spreading them to as many breeders , institutions and organisations as possible. Besides that we do instruct and advise people in Rare Breeds Parks, in Arc Farms or just in private home for rare breeds.
We search register, coordinate breeding and help spreading internationally rare and endangered breeds being kept in Germany.
RARE DOMESTIC BREEDS are VALUABLE !
Many of the round about 8300 Domestic Breeds are already extinct. Today we weekly loose one or two breeds worldwide. Like extinct wildlife the vanishing of domestic breeds leaves a gap in our environment.
Ancient and Rare Breeds, kept on our farms for centuries, influenced the character of our landscape and they are optimally adapted to their special local surroundings. They are hardy, vigorous, disease resistent and have no problems with winter conditions. Their variety should not be lost because of the breeding of few, uniform high performance breeds. The great variety is steadily decreasing today.
This trend must be stopped now : Because …
