Wildlife Law Enforcement

Index and Introduction

This unit of the site is under development. It will contain a small collection of significant papers on the topic of wildlife law enforcement. The texts have been gathered and are being slowly scanned and developed as files within the Web site. Other materials are also available below to support a continuing interest in the vital field of "wildlife" or wild faunal resource system management.

The current list of list of resources:

An email listserve relating to the law was started early in 2000.

Lawjuc is an academic and research oriented list for people interested and involved in matters/activities related to Law, Justice and Criminology. This historical initiative for discussion, debate, research, awareness and advocacy is open to lawyers, former judges, human rights activists, litigants, police officials, former prisoners, paralegals, law students and teachers. The LawJuC list is designed to encourage discussion of different aspects of the Criminal Justice System, legislations, important rulings and it would also raise critical issues and would provide communication links and a space for the exchange of information among researchers, scholars, activists, writers, lawyers, academicians, journalists and professionals interested in all forms of Law, Justice, Criminology and Human Rights. Lawjuc list would also serve as a network for lawyers and researchers in discussing data sources, books, events, conferences, opportunities, legal complications and web-based information resources.

As part of a project to ultimately post online the national wildlife legislation of every nation, we have uploaded the first document in this series to our site: the Biodiversity Law of Costa Rica (English translation). The official Spanish text will follow in a few days. We anticipate posting the wildlife legislation of Singapore and Taiwan within the next week.

Any individuals with access to copies of national legislation (without copyright restrictions) from other nations who wish to assist on this project can send the texts to us for scanning, or conversion to Adobe PDF if you have electronic versions.
