 One third of farm animal breeds face extinction
Domestic farm animals are crucial for food and agriculture, providing 30 to 40 percent of the agricultural sector's global economic value.
The greatest threat to domestic animal diversity is the export of animals from developed to developing countries, which often leads to crossbreeding or even replacement of local breeds.
The problem, however, is that these animals are only suited to conditions of the countries they come from; they can hardly survive under the often harsh environment of developing countries.
