Human Environment Animal Welfare (German: Mensch Umwelt Tierschutz, short form: The Animal Protection Party, German: Die Tierschutzpartei) is a political party in Germany. It was founded in 1993. In 2004 it had about 1,000 members.

The party aspires to turn away from the anthropocentric view of life. Its main goal is the introduction of more animal rights into the German constitution. Those include the right to live and the protection from physical and psychological damages. The Tierschutzpartei also demands prohibition of animal testing, bullfighting, hunting, the production of furs, circus animals and agricultural animal husbandry, as well as the adaptation of the people to vegetarianism.

Their ideas on environmental policy are relatively similar to those of Alliance '90/The Greens. The party supports a ban on genetic engineering and wants a reduction of car traffic and an immediate exit from nuclear energy.
