The Oostvaardersplassen - The Secret Shame of the Netherlands
We have been quite busy recently with the disasters that are happening in the nature reserve of the Oostvaardersplassen in the Netherlands. We have written several opinions for the authorities and documents on rewilding and ethics, the reserve as a tourist attraction, the reserve as a Natura 2000 area,  about compassionate conservation etc. We recently decided to visit the area. You can read the full report of our visit  "The Secret Shame of the Netherlands" on the page of Forests from Farms here

What happens when you fence in a so-called "nature reserve", introduce some herbivores and don't feed them? Animals die of starvation. Even a child could have predicted this.


The internationally famous "Re-wilding" project of the "Oostvaardersplassen" in the Netherlands has failed.

They are available in different colors, different sizes and in french and English. There are other designs available. Please have a look on the site and make your choice!

Letter to the European Commission about the French Wolf Plan 2018 - 2023

Today we sent a letter to European Commissioner for the environment, maritime affairs and fisheries, Mr Karmenu Vella and European Commissioner for agriculture and rural development, Mr Phil Hogan to express our concerns that the french is based on an incorrect interpretation of the report of scientists they mention in the plan and that it does not comply with the directive 92/43/EEC .

5 Year Plan for the Preservation (or better Killing) of the Wolf in France 

Today we presented our opinion to the open consultation of the French plan on the Wolf for the coming 5 years 2018 - 2023. The plan arguments amongst others that a killing of 10% of the population of 400 wolves per year is necessary to prevent attacks on sheep. We are obviously against this plan. You can read all about it in french here  (there is an option to translate our opinion into english).

Anti-Vegan Propaganda

Doesn't it bother you too that scientific research is quite often misinterpreted by the press to make a point or better to make their point? We started a new page on this site in which we would like to address this problem. We called it Anti-Vegan Propaganda. To start with we cast a critical eye on two specific scientific researches that appeared in 2017 in the press: a research paper called "Vegetarian diets and depressive symptoms among men" published in July and another research paper that  looked at the carrying capacity of current agricultural land in the USA, that was published in the newspapers under the title "vegan diet not sustainable".  Click on the button to open the page.
