We will be showing a one-hour documentary, RIGHTS OF NATURE: A GLOBAL MOVEMENT, that explains the importance of changing our worldview of nature being property to one that provides nature with rights of her own.                

After the screening members of the LEGAL RIGHTS FOR THE SALISH SEA and EARTH LAW CENTER will discuss what we’re doing to get rights of nature for the Southern Resident Killer Whales!

We are working to establish legal rights for the Southern Resident Killer Whale. Under our current legal system humans and corporations have legal standing but animals and ecosystems don’t. We believe that animals and ecosystems should also have legal rights and be able to defend those rights in court.
