Obituary: Committee founder Dr Inge Jaffke

Dr Inge JaffkeDr Inge JaffkeInge Jaffke devoted her life to bird protection. In 1975 she gathered like-minded people around her and founded the Komitee gegen den Vogelmord. The aim of the organisation was to protect wild birds against persecution by hunters, bird trappers and traders in wild birds. At that time, especially for a woman, a great deal of perseverance was needed to combat such powerful and well-organised opponents.
