Nonhuman Rights Project (NhRP) Interview Series
« In May 2020, the NhRP applauded a decision made by the Islamabad High Court in Pakistan that “without any hesitation” affirmed the rights of nonhuman animals and specifically ordered the release to sanctuary of an Asian elephant named Kaavan held in solitary confinement at the Marghazar Zoo. Chief Justice Athar Minallah’s decision, which relied in part on key decisions in the NhRP’s elephant rights cases, came about as a result of litigation brought by Owais Awan and Free the Wild, an organization co-founded by Cher.
We were honored to learn Owais’ efforts were in part inspired by our work, since a big part of what we seek to do is further a worldwide movement for nonhuman rights. Last November, Kaavan took his first steps into sanctuary. »
