y per­sonal attempt to try and con­vince every­body of the beauty and the impor­tance of nature as (evo­lu­tion­ary) phe­nom­e­non, espe­cially its fauna. Infor­ma­tion is given, in text and image, on my ‘beasts’. Cats, espe­cially big ones, will be star­ring next to other preda­tors. And if pos­si­ble my all time favourite the cow will make its appear­ance. But above all I would like to stress and show, as a one-​man-​pressure-​group, the impor­tance of the diver­sity of life on our earth. As the uncom­pli­cated beauty of ani­mals pro­vides a lot of plea­sure to those who appre­ci­ate it. More species mean more plea­sure. To pre­vent species from going extinct at the rate we see today is there­fore para­mount. Not only for esthetic rea­sons, but also for the preser­va­tion of life on earth. Because to me, loss of bio­di­ver­sity is insep­a­ra­ble con­nected to a dete­ri­o­rat­ing envi­ron­ment on earth. Mother Earth whom is less and less capa­ble of sus­tain­ing life. Zoos will become more impor­tant for con­ser­va­tion of fauna diver­sity, which I would like to show also. As a mat­ter of fact, I started the endeav­our with launch­ing a web­site (moos​mood​.com) focussing on this plethora of issues around 2008. It turned out that pick­ing up where I left years ago, vis­it­ing zoos and see what kind of progress was being made in keep­ing ani­mals in cap­tiv­ity, fit­ted nicely into my new chal­lenge. So, more and more time is con­sumed with vis­it­ing zoos and review­ing their efforts to save endan­gered species. Gen­e­sis and extinc­tion are an inex­tri­ca­ble cou­ple that seems off bal­ance. Let us try and restore this balance!

By sav­ing the tiger we save all the plants and ani­mals that live under the tiger’s umbrella.
