Visitors of Arche Warder will not find lions or elephants, but rare breeds like the White Parc cattle and saddleback pigs, many of them are as rare as the Siberian tiger! Diving Turopolje pigs, the Poitou- giant donkey are some examples of the nearly 86 different breeds of livestock in Europe’s largest center for rare and endangered domestic animals. Arche Warder is also a living museum – a museum where visitors can touch things! The bronceage soay sheep, the medieval Exmoorpony and the English park cattle are breeds whose roots reach far back into epochs.
Arche Warder’s five guiding principles for the preservation of endangered breeds:
1. Conservation through preservation. Through this objective, valuable old breeds are maintained and population size is increased.

2. Conservation through the establishment of satellite stations. With pastures distributed outside the park, Arche Warder ensures the protection of breeds against epidemics. These satellite pastures also allow us to increase the gene pool and utilize selected animals for agricultural purposes.

3. Conservation through education. The goals of Arche Warder serve our larger mission of conservation. Another way to work towards this is through education. We believe that by educating the general public the genetic diversity of domestic animals be saved.

4. Protection by networking with national and international institutions. In order to work successfully, Arche Warder needs a functioning network. Arche Warder maintains close contacts with nature conservation foundations, zoos, animal parks, Herdbook breeders and other associations. Furthermore, it is an important topic in political d iscussions and exchanges in Schleswig-Holstein and at the federal level.

5. Protection through research. With ongoing research projects and a focus on protection issues, Arche Warder works in close collaboration with universities and various research institutions in Germany, exchanging an
