Legal Tools & Links For the Conservation of Nature

Organization for Fair Treatment for All (OFTA)

OFTAThe OFTA is my creation. It was a cruel deception by an evil character in a novel I wrote.  I am allowing it to redeem itself by serving as a label for non-human legal issues, ideas, arguments, information, and resources.

Legal Guide for Activists

From the Animal Legal Defense Fund:

Article Headings:

  • Basic Legal Principles Applicable With Respect to Activism
  • Planning a Demonstration
  • Civil Disobedience
  • Interacting with the police
  • Animal Enterprise Terrorism Act

Links for Animal Ethics

Numerous links are provided by these websites:

Important Animal-Rights Documents

Valuable resources are present on numerous sites.  I highly recommend the essays listed on the Animal Rights Library site.

National Wildlife Agencies (Links to descriptions on the CAWT website)

My Woefully Incomplete List of Links for Conservation Organizations

I once thought I could build a complete list of all the important nature-conservation organizations.  There are too many, and yet . . . there aren’t enough.  Despite many solid efforts, we are killing off wild plants and animals at an ever-increasing rate.  The list below is a mix of international, national, local, and species-dedicated organizations.  The emphasis varies from pure wildlife focus to complete human bias.  Most of the links take you direct to the organization websites, but some take you first to the organization’s Wikipedia page.  I did not include links to social media though I recognize that many organizations conduct much of their communications there.  Please report broken or changed links to grogers@sigmaxi.net.
