About the Panel: This panel will feature perspectives from a scientist, policy analyst, and a lawyer, examining innovative legal and policy approaches to their protection and restoration, including through the legal recognition of their inherent rights. The discussion will underscore the urgency of addressing biodiversity loss and climate change as interconnected issues while inspiring broader conservation efforts for keystone species worldwide.

Global Coverage: The Washington Post recently covered the rights of animal species, particularly sea turtles, that is being advanced by ELC and partners such as The Leatherback Project. This panel is your opportunity to dive deep into the future of protecting marine species. Don’t miss it!

The panel will be followed by an exclusive reception with drinks & snacks (free with recommended $100 donation).
