Live-Talk with Dirk Steffens and Fritz Habekuß


"We are in the middle of the sixth mass extinction of species and are going through the biggest extermination of species since the disappearance of the dinosaurs. We humans are to blame for it and it is up to us alone to stop it."
The well-known nature film-maker Dirk Steffens has been active for years in the protection of species. Together with science journalist Fritz Habekuß he demonstrates how everything in the world of nature is connected and why the preservation of the diversity of species is essential for the survival of the human race.
In this book, the two authors put forward ways of stopping species being exterminated. These are drastic but not impossible – and they could give us the opportunity to revolutionise our relationship with nature.
