International Law and Wildlife Well-being- Moving from Theory to Action
A joint workshop sponsored by the American Society of International Law (the International Wildlife Law Forum under the International Environmental Law Interest Group) and the Animal Law Section of the Association of American Law Schools will take place November 13-14 at the George Washington University Law School.
The workshop will bring together animal, environmental, and international advocate and legal experts to discuss how international law can more effectively address individual wildlife wellbeing. International wildlife agreements address the conservation of the species, rather than the protection of individual wild animals. The overall goal of the workshop is to put wildlife wellbeing issues on the international agenda to raise awareness and address them more effectively. Workshop sessions include: entrapment and capture; whaling and hunting, including trophy hunting; captivity, including in private and public zoos and aquariums; the use of wild animals in tourism; human-wildlife conflicts over land use; and, of course, international trade.
The workshop is free and open to the public and students in particular are very welcome.
