thumbnail Artenschutz Schweiz: Wie viele Arten braucht die Schweiz

Abstract: Worldwide, thousands of animal and plant species are threatened with extinction. Even in Switzerland more than 3000 animals and plants appear in the so-called Red List of threatened species. Without appropriate protection measures many of these species may soon vanish forever. This website serves to demonstrate the dramatic situation of species threat, and to present the threatened species. At the same time, the political responsibilities are stressed ─ both of the Republic, the Cantons, and the Communes, but also of every individual. Finally, information about active, and planned, protective action for the benefit of threatened species will be found here. The overall objective of this website is to awaken the broadest possible public interest and understanding for the concerns of species protection. [Information of the supplier, translated]
According to the supplier the site is still under construction since the Swiss Species Protection Society was founded in 2007 and is therefore relatively young (As of: January 2008).
