There is currently no basic text in wildlife law suitable for the wide range of courses in wildlife conservation and animal welfare at both bachelors and masters level, or for the large number of people who work in conservation and animal welfare; The Laws Protecting Animals and Ecosystems fills the gap in this significant market for a basic law text applicable to students and professionals whose primary training is in biology but who require a basic understanding of the laws relating to the protection of animals and ecosystems. The text is applicable to a wide range of subjects, including wildlife conservation, animal handling, animal welfare, animal husbandry, and veterinary science.

This foundational text supports those studying animal and ecosystem law by providing an overview of the basic legal principles, national and international laws, terminology, the legal mechanisms used to protect animals and ecosystems, and a compendium of the major animal welfare and conservation laws in major English speaking countries. Dr. Rees has been teaching wildlife law for 20 years and ecology for over 35 years and is ideally placed to write this book.

Paul Rees is a Senior Lecturer in the School of Environmental and Life Sciences at the University of Salford, UK. His teaching and research interests include the behaviour and welfare of animals in zoos (especially elephants), particularly the importance of policy and legislation in influencing the pivotal role of zoos in the conservation of biodiversity and the welfare of animals living in zoos. He is the author of Urban Environments and Wildlife Law; a manual for sustainable development (Blackwell, 2002), An Introduction to Zoo Biology and Management (Wiley-Blackwell, 2011), A Dictionary of Zoo Biology and Animal Management (Wiley-Blackwell, 2013) and Studying Captive Animals (Wiley-Blackwell, 2015).
