Together with his brother Heinz Heck, also a zoologist and director of the largest zoological garden in southern Germany, "Tierpark Hellabrunn" in Münich, he started a selective breeding program, which attempted - based on the knowledge of animal genetics of the time - to "recreate" wild animal species, that are today extinct, from various forms of the domestic animals whose ancestors they were (see "breeding back"). By their work they created breeds of cattle and horse - later named "Heck cattle" and "Heck horse" respectively, after their creators - that are today seen as not sufficiently similar enough to their ancestors to be called a successful resurrection, although Heinz and Lutz Heck believed to have "resurrected" by their efforts. During World War II Heck took part in the pillaging of the Warsaw Zoo, stealing the most valuable animals and taking them to Germany. Bookseller Inventory # 38907
