Animal Legal Defense Fund’s Animal Law Summer School – Captive Wildlife   Leave a comment

Click picture to register and watch webinar!

If you missed ALDF’s recent webinar on captive wildlife, you can watch a recording of the session here.

“Matthew Liebman, Director of Litigation for the Animal Legal Defense Fund, teaches participants how animal advocates are using state and federal laws to protect wild animals in captivity. This webinar will focus on groundbreaking litigation brought by the Animal Legal Defense Fund under the Endangered Species Act, the Animal Welfare Act, and state laws. The cases have sought to liberate Lolita the Orca, Candy the Chimpanzee, Tony the Tiger, Ben the Bear, and others from inhumane captivity.”

Tony’s case was covered extensively. We truly appreciate ALDF’s commitment to Tony and to his release to a reputable big cat sanctuary. They have the positive support of Tony’s friends from all over the world.
