Should The Law Put Mother Nature First?

From making ecocide a criminal offense to giving animals their own legal public defenders , TreeHugger has often explored the notion of how and how far the law should recognize the rights of our non-human neighbors. Over at Permaculture Magazine, environmental lawyer Tom Brenan says that "Wild Law" should be at the very heart of our entire legal system : The geologian and cultural historian Thomas Berry identified the need for what he called 'Earth Jurisprudence', to re-envision our governance systems by placing Earth back at the centre. Such an approach can be referred to as Earth-centred governance. We need to recognise that we are one of many species that make up the amazingly diverse Earth Community and so rebalance our relationship with the Earth.
