Date: 12:00pm - 1:00pm PST November 10, 2017 Location: Legal Research Center

Legal Research Center

The use of surveillance collars to monitor wildlife populations has sparked controversy in Oregon and other states, where wildlife officials are tracking and killing wolves to avoid “conflicts” with humans and livestock. Henry Lininger and Tom Lininger have proposed a doctrine of wildlife privacy that would import some aspects of Fourth Amendment jurisprudence to limit wildlife surveillance. Their article, Unlocking the “Virtual Cage” of Wildlife Surveillance, appeared recently in the Duke Environmental Law and Policy Forum.
