Glorious is the early morning sunrise. As the fog rolls in across the small lake in a small subdivision in Orlando, Fl. You would never think an entire community surround this lake by looking at this photo. All you see is the serenity and peacefulness of clouds as they float above the lake. Find the peace in every part of nature. Lose yourself in the sounds, the blissful quiet and the calmness before everything awakens. https://fighttofreedomandpreservationofthewild.com/2018/11/29/lakeside-serenity/ - . . . . #lakeviews #earlymorning #sunrise #lakeside #lakesideserenity #serenity #naturepost #environmentallaw #environmentalblog #freedom_preservationofthewild #littlethings #simplepleasures #blogpost #newblogpost #newblogger

Exercise your right to vote, Florida. 🗳 we as Florida’s must stand up for the environment. Red tide has devastated our ecosystem and is continuing to cause destruction. It is imperative that you vote this midterm election. The sake of our environmental future lays in the balance. We must protect our oceans. Prevent off shore drilling on the coast of Florida. End grey hound racing because it is cruel and inhumane to all animals involved. Be the change our state needs. #protrectourstate #protectourwildlife #floridanature #vote #midtermelections2018 #floridamidtermelection #getoutandvote #voteyeson13 #voteyeson9 #saveflorida #freedom_preservationofthewild #changeourfuture #endgreyhoundracing #saynotooffshoredrilling
Serenity. Backyard brook in 📍Brattleboro, VT !! The cascading water over the smooth rocks makes for a picturesque photo op. #natureisbeautiful #brook #backyardbrook #vermont #brattleborovt #travelmore #protectourenvironment
Niagara Falls, NY. 📍 I have been to the beautiful Canada 🇨🇦 side, but I got to view the American side. Some people say it’s not as impressive, I beg to differ. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Any magnitude of rushing water, flowing is an awe-inspiring moment. Find your wonder. 💕☮️ 🌎. #niagarafalls #niagarafallsny #niagarastatepark #newyork #buffalonewyork #travel #travelforwork #natureisamazing #freedom_preservationofthewild #findyourwonder #loveiseverything #environmentalblogger
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

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 ❤
