Always On The Map: An Introduction to Animal Law Issues in the U.S. Territories

« The United States has five major territories: American Samoa, Guam, the Northern Mariana Islands, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands. Collectively, the territories are home to roughly 4 million individuals. However, discussions on issues facing the nation often exclude the territories from the conversation. Conversations on pertinent national issues should always include the territories, and our discussions on issues relevant to animal law and protection are no exception. In some ways, the territories face challenges to animal protection that are similar to those faced by stateside jurisdictions; in other ways, their challenges are specific to their particular community and environment. This webinar will discuss some of the challenges faced by territories, as well as point to the current legal and policy approaches aimed at protecting animals and criminalizing maltreatment in each territory. It will also provide an overview of the territories’ legal systems, explain their unique relationships with the federal government, and highlight the specific types of animal maltreatment prevalent in these communities. »
