Exploring how the law can be used to influence, for better and for worse, the lives of the billions of individual animals we call wildlife, this new book focuses not only on the legal issues involved but also on the compelling ethical and moral issues that are inextricably intertwined with our treatment of wild animals. For a subject so complex and variegated, the editors have chosen essay chapters from some of the country’s most knowledgeable and experienced wildlife lawyers and advocates on illustrative and focused issues that have broad implications for practitioners in the area. Framed around specific issues, each chapter focuses on the significant and often unrealized power of U.S. law to influence wildlife protections around the world. This is an informative and understandable resource for lawyers, scholars, and the increasing number of citizens who care about the future of wildlife.
