|When||Friday, Apr. 21, 2017, 12:30 – 1:20 p.m.|
Professor Tom Lininger from University of Oregon School of Law is presenting a talk concerning a forthcoming article which he co-authored in the Duke Environmental Law Forum titled “Unlocking the ‘Virtual Cage’ of Wildlife Surveillance.” Professor Lininger will be discussing the new doctrine of wildlife privacy that he proposes, and applies this doctrine to limiting the use of surveillance collars on various animals, including gray wolves. This topic of surveillance is literally a matter of life or death for wolves within the United States, and is currently a relatively hot topic due to the recently approved amendment by the US House of Representatives to end all funding for wolf conservation under the Endangered Species Act. Lunch provided.
