Mission

Earth Law Center works to transform the law to recognize and protect nature’s inherent rights to exist, thrive and evolve.
We do this by building a force of advocates for nature's rights at the local, state, national, and international levels.

What We Do

Our continued well being depends on a paradigm shift in law from a human based one to a nature based one so ecological communities also have rights and protections. This would mean securing legal rights for Marine Protected Areas like the Patagonian Sea can protect thousands of species of animals and help preserve that key ecosystem. Granting the Great Lakes legal rights ensures the protection and restoration of that ecosystem, resulting in a sustainable relationship between human needs and the needs of the ecosystem and species within. Thanks to help from Catchafire volunteers, ELC has launched a dozen legal initiatives this year and preparing to start new ones in 2018.
