Herbivores – especially large herbivores, such as cattle, horses, deer, and buffalos – play an important role in enhancing biodiversity by creating dynamics in nature, and thereby habitats for a great variety of animals and plants. Animal holders, farmers, and others who have a formal agreement with the Nature Agency own the animals.
