Voiceless has announced the 2012 Voiceless Animal Law Lecture Series: a legal exploration of commercial hunting in Australia and Canada.
Australia’s iconic kangaroos are hunted in the largest commercial slaughter of land-based wildlife on the planet – almost 90 million have been lawfully killed in the last 20 years.
Canada’s harp seals are hunted in the world’s largest commercial slaughter of marine mammals – almost 4 million have been lawfully killed in the last 20 years.
With two countries holding such similar records, it is worthwhile exploring the legal parameters of the hunts. In order to do this, Voiceless is proud to present Canadian lawyer, Lesli Bisgould as our keynote speaker for 2012.
Lesli is a leader in animal law, having practised in the area for ten years, authored the first Canadian text on the subject and lectured widely throughout Canada and the US. In what is sure to be a fascinating presentation, Lesli will reflect on her experiences with the seal hunt and offer insights into Australia’s own native hunt. She will be joined by Australian leaders in animal law and environmental law, who will give a local perspective on the kangaroo industry and the laws that enable it.
Touring 12 venues throughout Australia, the lectures are open to the public and free to attend.
Please join us for an insightful presentation.
