Abstract

With the severity of our Earth’s climate change crisis, this article endeavors to underline the critical need for environmental reformation. It is no secret that orca whales epitomize miraculous intelligence, gentility, and strength. As overwhelming as this crisis might be, there are very concrete steps that our legal system can take to begin protecting and making a difference for our whales and our Earth. It is my hope that this article can shed some light on what is at stake for these animals, and how we might move forward toward a sustainable, safe future for them.
