Legal equality ofhumanh and nature


It requires der loving and  responsible management of nature by man. In order to ensure the safety and integrity of nature, all biotic and non-biotic living beings (humans, animals, plants, mountains, biosphere, Gulf Stream etc.) must be given personal, civil and human rights. They are given the status of human children. 

What is that supposed to help?

Every felling of a tree, every pollution of a river, every killing of an animal would be punished according to human criminal law. Felling a tree or killing an animal would be treated and punished in the same way as murdering a child. Poisoning a river would be grievous bodily harm. The state would be obliged to take action in the event of any negative impact on nature, as if it were a breach of the law against one of its citizens.

If this happens worldwide, the destruction of nature and climate change would stop. Those who damage nature are criminalized and landed for many years

in prison. No company wants or can afford this. This deterrent would be the greatestpolluters depend on itold to destroy nature. 

Climate change, species extinction, pollution, plastic waste, deforestationhe - all this would be a thing of the past!

man & nature

In its essence, nature is equal to man   and equal.

human rights

Since nature is equal to humans, it follows from this that it has a right to human rights

personal rights

Since nature is on an equal footing with humans, it has the right to be recognized as a person

civil rights

Since nature is on an equal footing with humans, this entails its claim to national civil rights

People and nature are relatedlike parents to their children (aged 3 to 6 years).

Practical implementation of equality

Mpeople must treat nature like their children. with all the rights and obligations that result from this for people as parents. This describes arecognizes the leadership role of man over nature. On the other hand, it obliges humanity towards natureCaring, love and responsibility to act. It is obliged to protect and preserve nature.


If soBecause nature and all animals are our children, we must also give them the same rights as children. That means:

All of this has consequences:


  1. Nature must not be destroyed

  2. Animals may not be killed and eaten. 

  3. Animals must not be tortured

  4. Animals must be kept in a species-appropriate manner.


Pets should be given the human, civil and personal rights of an infant. In contrast to human persons, they are given the designation "animal persons". Since they live with people, I am more precise with the termhuman-bound animal persons.


The needs of human-bound animal persons must be legally binding.

These rights include:


  • Species-appropriate living, food, protection, • health

  • care, territory, reproduction, 

  • Movement, sun, fresh air

Humans are the legal representatives and guardians of their animal persons. People who keep pets are therefore obliged to comply with these laws, most of which are contained in the Animal Welfare Act, but are unfortunately reviewed too laxly. Failure to comply shall result in penalties equivalent to breach of duty of care for young children.



Farm animals also fall under human-bound animal persons. Farmers are responsible for welfare in the higher legal sense. The animals have the personal status of small children and must therefore of course neither be killed nor tortured. Their human rights must not be violated.


They must not be genetically designed or become pregnant through artificial insemination. As a contribution to the welfare of society, human-bound farm animals may be used for work under the guidance of humans. Milk may be used by humans, but only with respect for human dignity.

The cow must not be immediately separated from her calf. It is common practice in the dairy industry to take the children away from the mother cow immediately after birth. That's inhuman. The calves cry for their mother, and the
Cow suffers desperately.

The following conditions apply to the use of animals for work:

  • Compliance with fundamental, civil and personal rights,

  • Species-appropriate husbandry, the animal person must have reached their species-specific adulthood

  • Human labor law applies, including species-specific regulated working, rest, break and vacation times,

  • As wages, the farmer is obliged to give the animal human-bound livestock to work under the guidance of humans


wildlife and nature

Wild animals include everyoneundomesticated creatures of the three domains: eukaryotes, archaea and bacteria.This includesinsects, non-domesticatedbirds, non-domesticatedsea creatures,
non-domesticatedcountry people, the whole ofbiotic nature(plants, fungi, prokaryotes, protists, ecosystems), and the totality ofabiotic naturer (climate, weather, atmosphere, sea, ice, glacier, snow, water, temperature, light, current, soil conditions, humidity, nutrient salt concentration,
mountains, rocks, minerals, planets, asteroids).


  • All of the above are given personal status.

  • They are referred to as "animal person" and otherwise as "nature person".

  • People are not allowed to enter their living space, neither on land, on water nor in the air

  • 10-year moratorium on large areas of forests, seas, floodplains, mudflats and marshes, rainforests, etc.
