Save animals & biodiversity
Protect and care animals
We are currently in the greatest extinction of species since the end of the dinosaurs. One in eight bird species, more than 30% of sharks and rays, and about 40% of amphibian species are threatened with extinction. A quarter of mammal species are struggling to survive. That animal species become extinct is a natural process, but it is accelerated by human intervention. Each of us likes to look at a majestic lion, a magnificent tiger or is fascinated by the variety of colors of underwater creatures. However, we should be aware that these animals have a more difficult life due to our intervention.
Humans rob them of food sources, habitat and pose a threat to their survival. We have the opportunity to act now. Not tomorrow or the day after tomorrow, but now!
Stop poaching and preserve species
In Africa, rhinos are among the BIG 5 (elephants, lions, rhinos, leopards, buffaloes). They are felt primeval times on this planet and can tell a long story. There are now only 5 species of rhinos, whose most striking distinguishing feature is their horns. 2 species, the white and black rhino, live in Africa. The Java, Armored and Sumatran rhinoceros live in Asia. Greatly reduced by poaching, we support the preservation of these witnesses of past worlds.
The tiger, the largest big cat in the world, is also struggling with poaching. It is necessary to create habitat for him again and to protect the majestic big cat. In 2009, a total of only 3200 tigers were counted worldwide. Meanwhile, just under 4000 adult tigers roam the forests of Asia again.
From 2000 to 2018, nearly 1600 poached tigers were secured by the authorities. The dark number is high. What are with the tiger the tiger bones and its claws, are with the rhinoceros its horn, which is to have a high medical effect. Nevertheless, it does not give us humans the right to rob these unique animals or even to kill them because of their characteristics.
We at Voice Aid want to support the preservation of our animals and biodiversity. In addition to our own projects, we are encouraged to support the WWF in its work and to actively participate through donations and projects.
Support of the animal rescue station animal protection Siebengebirge of the non-profit association animal, nature and species protection Siebengebirge e.V.
Not only animals in far-away countries urgently need the attention of humans and their help, but also with us in Germany animals have this right. How often is it the case that animals are acquired in families, which are then abandoned on a roadside or in the forest. Too inconvenient, too much work or nevertheless too high costs drive the owners to this step. In order to offer these creatures a possibility of survival, we at Voice Aid support the animal rescue station in Bad Honnef in the Rhein-Sieg district.
The animal, nature and species protection Siebengebirge e.V. located there takes care of found and surrendered animals, takes in animals that are separated from their owners due to special situations and pays attention to the placement in appropriate families. In addition, the association gives advice in all areas of animal husbandry, in order to provide the animals in the families with a proper and species-appropriate attitude and accommodation.
Annually, the association devotedly cares for up to 500 animals (dogs, cats, horses, rabbits, guinea pigs, birds and turtles).
Nature and species conservation - raising people's awareness
The animal, nature and species protection Siebengebirge e.V., which we would like to support as Voice Aid, not only cares for its protégés in the area of animal protection, but is also active in nature and species protection.
With a nature garden for children with plant identification and insect lore, the association already wants to sensitize the younger generations and bring them on the right path. A natural pond for fish, amphibians and insects is also available. In addition, the association focuses on perennials and herb beds for wild bees and butterflies. Nesting and feeding areas have been set up to support native bird species.
We would like to support this dedication of the association and also actively help in our own country to preserve biodiversity and strengthen animal protection.
