Affect Legislation

Laws, and the legislative process through which they are made, are a society's means to codifying its principles, aspirations, and structures. From the standpoint of biodiversity conservation, establishing the protection of biodiversity in legal frameworks at global, national and regional levels is essential on both philosophical and practical levels. International agreements with the force of law, such as the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Flora and Fauna (CITES), simultaneously signal the world's commitment to end the trafficking in endangered wildlife and provide mechanisms for the convention's signatories to use in achieving that common goal. National laws like the U.S. Endangered Species Act, which very clearly articulates that species have "esthetic, ecological, educational, historical, recreational, and scientific value to the Nation and its people," are equally critical in protecting species and their habitats. Conservationists must continue to understand and involve themselves in the legislative process at all levels in order to protect the environmental laws that already exist, encourage additional legal protections for biodiversity, and foster the inclusion of conservation ethics in all laws.
