The loss of biodiversity is not only threatening wild animals but also farm animals. Farm animals have been domesticated for centuries but today many species are not regarded as suitable for contemporary farming. The point according to a report from the UN is to save these species rather than eat them.

Below are two photos of rare species. Can you find any more photos of rare cattle, sheep, pigs, hens or goats?
