How We Act

By Protecting ...

"Amalthia" rescues endangered breeds by locating animals of a particular breed and assembling them into small groups thus creating breeding nuclei.

A diferent action is taken for breeds that are considered "threatened" by improving conditions of breeding in cooperation with local associations or individual breeders. In case of emergency or absence of unions or interested individuals "Amalthia" acts alone.

By Tuning ...

One of "Amalthia's causes is the creation and coordination of programs at national and European level in cooperation with other associations and organizations.  "Amalthia" serves as a center for the exchange of information and expertise between the state agencies, unions, owners, fans, friends, researchers and breeders. In this way we achieve the development and strengthening of ties between individuals and legal bodies involved.

By Researching ...

"Amalthia" conducts investigations to rediscover breeds that existed and had been recorded by the state in the past but today are considered "extinct". eg. the Kea cattle breed. Moreover, "Amalthia" is researching the possible existence of unknown breeds in animal populations that have never been studied before. eg. many goat populations. Other studies focus on population groups with specific characteristics within a particular breed. eg. vrachykeratiki cattle breed. Finally, "Amalthia" conducts studies or undertakes projects for specific breeds such as the creation of the digital studbook for the Skyros Pony association.
