NRW only 0.19 percent wilderness in the core zone of the Eifel National Park.
Self Bayern As the largest land area with a lot of forest, only 0.63 percent have wilderness.
According to reports, the proportion of wilderness in the actually wooded federal states is even lower Rhineland-Palatinate (0.54 percent) and Hessen (0.48 percent).
Baden-Wuerttemberg At 0.23 percent, the rate is almost as bad as the much more densely populated NRW.
Thanks to its overgrown military training areas and open pit areas it cuts Brandenburg with 0.78 percent better.
The highest proportions of wilderness are therefore in the Saarland (0.97 percent) and in Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania with its extensive national parks (1.58 percent).
Only in autumn of last year the federal government published a report according to which Germany does not manage to adequately protect domestic biodiversity, although the government has committed itself to do so under international law. For 11 out of 13 indicators with specific target values, including biodiversity and the protection of endangered species, the values are still “far” or “very far” from the target range. An assessment by the Ministry of the Environment on the report states that the target values applicable for 2020 and 2030 could “in all probability not be achieved”.
The increase in protected areas does not seem to lead to sufficient protection of the species either.
Threat to biodiversity
The decline in biological diversity in the agricultural landscape is so dramatic that it will have serious consequences for the functionality of the agricultural ecosystems and are to be expected for the well-being of humans «, says the paper» Biodiversity and Management of Agricultural Landscapes «, published by the National Science Academy Leopoldina, the Academy of Science and Engineering and the Union of German Academies of Sciences.
The ir conclusion: Anything that makes agriculture more efficient and competitive endangers the diversity of species in Germany.
