Did you know that the world's 20 largest meat and dairy corporations were responsible for more greenhouse gas emissions in 2016 than Germany? Or that the three largest producers of meat and dairy products emitted more greenhouse gases last year than all of France?

Wednesday 04. October 2017 / Category: Report, Maasai, Pastoralists, Cattle

In many places animals have to live a life that is unethical and far from being species-appropriate. Worldwide demand for animal products is rising. Animals often have to bear the consequences of the increasing pricing pressure.

As reported, the situation in the Western Serengeti in Tanzania has escalated recently: many Maasai villages have been ruthlessly burned and countless Maasai lost the basis of their existence.

What are the backgrounds for the ruthless expulsion of the Maasai from the Western Serengeti? The disputes on Maasai land have begun more than 30 years ago. At that time, the Tanzanian...
