I am supporting the Araguaia Corridor because it is an intelligent project.”


World-renowned virologist

About me

Prof. Dr. Hans Lutz is a renowned emeritus Veterinary Medicine Professor at University of Zurich, where he graduated from in 1971. Since then, he has been developing extensive researches in bacteriology, virology and immunology, concluding over 250 published papers. One of the many accomplishments in his career was his presidency of the Swiss National Centre for Retroviruses. Lutz’ scientific path in the veterinary world has led to become a feline specialist of the International Union for the Conservation of Nature.

How I relate to the BJF

In the Araguaia Corridor, Lutz sees a virtuous convergence between nature conservation and the urge of Brazilian landowners to spare a part of their land for nature. In his vision, underpinned by 40 years of scientific knowledge, the Araguaia Corridor is an intelligent project. Professor Lutz is a longtime admirer of felines, and one of the many scientific voices supporting the BJF.
