Protect our animals
According to conservative estimates, there are up to 9 million species of animals on our planet, of which up to 55,000 are extinct each year. These figures are not conceivable for any of us. Nevertheless, species extinction is taking place.
Animals are just as important to us as the plants. Pet owners are generally considered to be more relaxed and happier. Scientific studies have shown that petting your dog or cat reduces human skin resistance. When we feel less external tension, we are more relaxed.
The animals breathe the same air as we humans and have similar body processes and functions to us in many examples. It is said, for example, that only one gene separates us from pigs.
Pork never really belonged on the human diet plan. In the Middle Ages they were used as waste pigs, in important cities such as Florence. Pigs can rejoice: you can see them laughing, they try to live cleanly, but also like some earth. They care for their children and their offspring with joy, provided we give them a chance to do so.
The forest animals, in turn, are referred to as so-called wild animals, as opposed to the chicken, pork, lamb, beef, rabbit, etc. and are therefore subject to aspects other than those of farm animals. All animals deserve our respect and we should be smart enough to take responsibility for their lives, in all places of their existence, whether at home, in the stable or in the forest. This is not a question of spinning or pure kindness, but a duty. To the extent that we have the right to decide on the lives of other living beings, we also have a duty to shape this life together with them in love and respect.
There are still people who find excuses for the social behaviour of animals in order to trace them back to pure impulses, which are intended to ensure survival.
But what is the survival benefit of laboratory mice when they develop depression?
What is the survival advantage for the elephant mother when it mourns for her deceased child?
In Germany, the Civil Code (BGB) still classifies animals as “property objects”. This means that they are practically lawless. According to the Animal Welfare Act, protection rights for animals can be asserted, but this is always at the discretion of the decision-makers or legislation. After all, since 1990 animals have been regarded as “soulful property”, i.e. they no longer have the passage as an object of fact, but still have no rights of their own.
The new Zealand government’s decision, which has enshrined in the national constitution, that all animals should be recognised as leading beings, is a model here, and this follows not only common sense, but also the evidence of the Science. This amendment also facilitates the prosecution of animal cruelty and the prohibition of animal testing in research.
By serving as a model for other European countries, New Zealand can implement groundbreaking changes for the entire wildlife across Europe. For this is not just about following common sense, but also about believing the evidence from science.
Who in the 21st In the 19th century, animals still denied their sensibility, either never made an intimate connection with an animal friend or probably also believed that the Earth is a disk and we are the only planet in a boundless universe.

I am sure you have already heard of the red list. All endangered species are listed there. In 2015, about 80,000 species were threatened with extinction, 23,250 of them. The overall figure may seem low, but the ecological balance is still not there and small changes influence this. If a plant e.g. B. dies out, from which a certain insect feeds, this species is also threatened.
There are various reasons for the extinction of species, such as trophy hunting by holidaymakers, the boosting of agriculture. In agriculture, the so-called monocultures are created, which pose a threat to insects. Humans, however, are the cause of increasing species extinction. In order to prevent another major species extinction, humans must provide protective measures, ultimately also in order to save themselves.
Because first the insects disappear, then the plants and then the human.
In 2005 a pilot project was launched at the Heinz-Sielmann-Weiher in Baden-Württemberg. A “living room for animals” was built there. Various ponds have been flooded, increasing the bird population from 115 bird species to 173. We also want to create new biotopes through such projects in order to preserve biodiversity through renaturation.
Mass animal husbandry since the 1960s, poaching, animal testing, habitat destruction: human handling of animals has become increasingly ruthless over the centuries. Whether we are the crown of creation is a matter of dispute. But we do not have the right to torture, hunt, kill senselessly, and exterminate entire species, whether animal or plant, which are also God’s creation, just for the sake of profit.
Each of you has had contact with a dog, cat or other animal.
Then you know how much feelings, emotion and pain an animal really feels.
Did you know that we biologically have the same pain receptor system as animals and that there are no major genetic differences? We share 98.5% of our DNA with the chimpanzees and even 50% with our plants. All the animals of this wonderful planet lie genetically between us and the plants.
The fact that we share the same DNA and that our survival depends on a functioning ecosystem and all parts of this ecosystem is often the case with exotic souvenirs, the supposedly fake fur collar on our winter coat and the meat on our plate. quickly forgotten.
Billions of animals suffer because we insist on our schnitzel, they live in their own excrements, standing in tiny lattice boxes. They are fattened and pumped with antibiotics and their tails and beaks are burned so that they cannot hurt each other in their suffering. Male piglets are neutered without anaesthetic, chicks are trimmed and male chicks are shredded immediately, because no money can be made with them.
In the interests of the consumer and a thriving economy, animals are being done outrageous things every day that would constitute serious human rights violations.
It is time for us to reconsider and to realize that each and every one of us has the threads and the life of our society in our hands.
Help us, step by step, to protect our beloved animals.
What are we doing about it?
- We are committed to a conscious approach to nature and our resources
- We want to establish protected areas for endangered species
- We work with municipalities, private individuals, companies and other partners to implement our animal welfare projects
- We want to go to the schools to raise awareness among the younger generation
- We want to change people’s awareness that life together between humans and animals makes it possible, including consideration as motorists on the country road
And now are you in demand!
