Our native biodiversity is under attack: Invasive plants and animals are disrupting the balance of our local wildlife.
Although the EU has already started addressing this issue, action is usually only taken in commercially relevant areas. It seems like natural conservation is too uneconomical, so long-term consequences are simply ignored.
In order to make this ecological issue accessible to a wide audience while simultaneously reducing the numbers of invasive species in our wilderness, the next step is obviously integrating them into the economic cycle – By eating them!
Soup from the invasive Pond Slider Turtle and roasted Raccoon with shoots from Japanese Knotweed appear on the menu of a near future.
Do we have to change our paradigms of consumption if we want to protect what we consider to be our ‘pristine’ nature? Or is this only a late justification of our own ecological mess? How do we even define ‘nature’ in the age of the Anthropocene?
