This chapter looks at the different animals that people raise in tropical countries. It considers how to provide the food, housing and medicine needed for healthy animals using local and traditional materials and the appropriate modern technology. Raising animals using permaculture methods regenerates the land on which the animals are raised as well as the surrounding environment. This chapter also looks at different ways to integrate animals into agriculture, agro-forestry and aquaculture systems, and how to use their natural habits as productive labour.
