This easy-to-use reference book is the first compilation of its kind, collating international, regional and European instruments relating to wildlife conservation and animal welfare.
It offers an authoritative and comprehensive selection of key documents from the early Agreement on Nature Protection and Wildlife Preservation in the Western Hemisphere 1940 to the most recent European Directives and Regulations. It covers a range of topics such as farm animals, wildlife, companion animals and animals in experimentation.
For each instrument a brief editor's note has been provided along with the dates of adoption, date of entry into force and a list of parties or signatories where appropriate. In addition, for reference purposes, a list of the names and addresses, including email and website, of the relevant secretariats or bodies has been provided as well as an extensive table indicating each country and which instruments they are a party to.
Basic Documents on International Animal Welfare and Wildlife Conservation is the first collection to address both international and regional instruments in this important and developing area of law. This unique work will prove extremely valuable to students, academics, government officials, non-governmental organisations, and all those committed to the development of wildlife protection and animal welfare.
