Since its beginnings, the understanding of animal protection has been based on scientific findings. Since 1972, the German Animal Protection Act has been based in particular on veterinary and ethological knowledge of non-human animals. We therefore find it important that organizations of animal movements, journalists, decision-makers and other actors active in the field of human-animal relations base their work on current and recognized research.
An uncountable number of nonhuman animals are bred, kept, transported and slaughtered worldwide. The non-human animals develop diseases and behavioral problems during production due to the conditions in which they have to live. Little or no consideration is given to their interests.
