Ocean Rights: Rights of Marine Wildlife

Michelle Bender recorded a guest lecture for Lewis and Clark Law Schools 2024 course on Aquatic Animal Law, and this presentation is a similar representation of that lecture. Animal Rights constitutes a specific dimension of Rights of Nature, and Rights of Marine Species is leading the development of this dimension. Michelle shares how the RoN paradigm can positively influence ecosystem restoration in instances of severe harm, fishery management decisions, as well as protect migratory species.

Michelle Bender briefly introduces Ocean Rights and the Universal Declaration of Ocean Rights initiative. Ocean Vision Legal serves as the central hub for the implementation and enforcement of Ocean Rights, which represents the specific application of RoN within the Ocean policy seascape while directing the legal thought of international recognition of the inherent Rights of the Ocean.
