Animal Law in Australasia is a new book edited by Peter Sankoff and Steven White which is a scholarly examination of the legal relationship between humans and animals in Australia and New Zealand. It asks whether existing laws really do protect animals and, where the law comes up short, how it could be improved. The questions explored go beyond animal welfare and challenge the reader to think about the nature of legal interests, and practical and ethical contexts for a range of laws.
Australian, New Zealand and international academics and practitioners cover topics ranging from core concepts and theoretical questions around “animal welfare” and law, to specific matters of concern - animal cruelty sentencing, live animal export, recreational hunting, and commercial uses of animals in farming and research.
