Mah new best frawnddd!! I haven’t named him/her yet!! This gator is ‘bout 3-4 feet!! Definitely intrigued by mine and Tolkien’s presence lol. Love watching this gator glide through the water so gracefully. We need to do more to protect our wildlife. This may be a lake, but they belong in larger habitats, such as the Florida Everglades. Their natural home, we need to clean and restore the flow! #natureisbeautiful #allcreaturesarebeautiful #alligator #floridagator #gorgeous #lakeview #floridabeauty #newfrawnd #cueeriemusic #gracefulswimmers #protectwildlife #freedom_preservationofthewild #protectfloridagators #restoretheflow #floridaeverglades

Okay, I'll admit it, I hate salads. Yes, I said it!! I was a ballerina for so long that I was forced to eat salads all the time. However, going meatless does not necessarily mean you HAVE to eat them all the time. It does mean that you can make them more fun! I know I have been away for a while and I apologize if anyone is still out there!!

https://www.facebook.com/donate/678095942582534/ For my birthday this year, I'm asking for donations to Wildlife S.O.S. I had the pleasure of meeting one of the founder's (Kartick Satyanarayan) of this incredible organization at the Animal Law Conference a few years ago. They are located in India. However, the work they do has impacted all wildlife in India as well as the poor people. They help to teach them not to use wildlife in order to earn money from tourists. They have taught them to earn money from real jobs. Most importantly they rescue animals from all situations and provide them a safe haven. They fight in India's court system and help to promote better legislation. They may not be a rescue in America, but they are probably on of the hardest working organizations world wide and deserve our respect. We can learn a lot of this organization and its hardworkiing people! MY favorite animal is the Bengal Tiger and they are going extinct. As are many animals all around the world. Please if you can, donate to Wildlife SOS. You are not only helping in the rescue of innocent sentient beings, but you are providing for their safety. Thank you all!! I hope you'll consider contributing as a way to celebrate with me. Every little bit will help me reach my goal. #wildlifesos #wildlifesosindia #karticksatyanarayan #protectwildlife #indianwildlife #everydollarcounts #pleasedonate #awareness #educate #compassion #rescue #wildliferescue #animallaw #animallawconference #animallawconference2015

When people meet me and ask what type of law do I intend to practice, they are always pretty baffled. I have a true passion for protecting those that are voiceless. Most animals embody the meaning of voiceless. Animals do not have their own voice, their choices are made for them by humans, their actions are chosen by humans, their very existence is controlled by our actions. Animals are more than just “chattel”, ( legal jargon for- property). However, our laws do not protect animals as living sentient beings, they are seen as a means to an end. Ultimately, that end is for the pure purpose of humans and not to lead a full life. A sentient being is a “creature” or mammal that has the capacity to suffer and feel pain, which is all living and breathing creatures.

While I was in law school, I became the President of our “animal law club” properly known as Student Animal Legal Defense Fund (SALDF). Being president was not only an honor, but it afforded me opportunities and experiences in the Animal Law realm that I never knew existed. As President, I became very involved and was able to promote more awareness, thanks to the hard work of our national chapter, Animal Legal Defense Fund (ALDF).

I wanted to give a proper definition of what animal law actually is. Below is an excerpt from ALDF’s website and I hyperlinked the subsection to their website!

ALDF is one of the pioneering organizations that is responsible for aiding animal liberation around the country. I was very honored to have attended the Animal Law Conference in Portland, Oregon in 2015. Throughout the rest of my blog posts, I intend to elaborate more on Animal Law (as well as Environmental Law) and touch on different facets of the law regarding animals and their treatment. Be sure to stay tuned!

What is Animal Law?

“It’s a combination of statutory and case law in which the nature – legal, social or biological – of nonhuman animals is an important factor. It encompasses companion animalswildlife, and animals used in entertainmentresearch, and raised for food.

It permeates and affects most traditional areas of the law – including tort, contract, criminal, trust/estates, family, environmental, administrative, and constitutional law. Examples of this intersection include: animal custody disputes in divorces and separations, veterinary malpractice caseshousing disputes: “no pets” policies and discrimination laws, damages cases involving the wrongful death or injury to a companion animal, enforceable trusts for companion animals, and criminal law issues, encompassing domestic violence and anti-cruelty laws.”

Again, the above is taken directly from Animal Legal Defense Fund’s website. I will give a more thorough analysis in this post, or a new one! ( I have a huge book from my Animal Law class, as well all the research and work I have done thus far.

As always: peace, love, and world peace ❤
