About Rights of Nature:
Rights of Nature laws are a new kind of conservation law rooted in Indigenous values, which recognize ecosystems as having legally enforceable rights to exist, regenerate, flourish and be free from pollution. Being granted legal rights affords the highest protections possible under the law, and its benefits for ecosystems include:
Expanded “standing” for enforcement
New and elevated standards of protection
Restoration required as a remedy.
