Environmental work in the USA

Arid deserts, vast prairie, rock landscapes and mountains, fertile farmland, large forests, scenic coastal areas and vibrant cities: The United States of America are incredibly manifold and offer an enormous amount of natural, historical and cultural highlights.

Due to its dimensions – there are multiple climate zones in the USA – the country provides amazing landscapes, popular destinations for day trippers and tourists looking for adventure. The domestic fauna fascinates as well, comprising more than 1600 animal species. Particularly raptors, different rodents, foxes, bears, wild cats, diverse reptile species and mustangs are native to the USA’s different regions.

However, tourism and conservation frequently don’t see eye to eye – in order conserve the pristine nature and with it the many amazing animal species it is important to regulate tourism, set up protected areas and conduct specific conservation measures.

Animal welfare in the USA

The protection of domesticated animals is also of great importance in the United States – as in many other places in the world, the United States regularly register cases of animal rights violation, in which animal like horses, pigs and cows but also captive creatures fall victim to abuse, neglect or illegal trade. Fortunately, lots of rescue centers have been founded and dedicate themselves to the fate of mustangs, formerly farmed animals and exotic wildlife. They offer a safe haven, provide for care and rehabilitation and, later on, try to find a loving new home for them.
