The FB group dedicated to all people (owners, breeders) that wants to help and learn about population genetics of our breed, which is rapidly loosing its already low diveristy facing the inevitable and sad future if current trends will continue. In 2012 dr. Leroy counted the Ne (effective population size) of barbet as of 27. While populations with effective population size below 50 are at immediate risk of extinction. Barbet is already halfway through its way to disappear. If You are just passing by to earn some money and walk away from breeding, this group is not for You, if You think that everything is fine the group is not for You, if You want to impose further restrictions in breeding the group is not for You, if You think You know all or You don’t have to learn the group is not for You. All others ale welcome.
Do something for the breed that You love, it won’t heal itself.
