Take Action for Wild Animals

Across the world, wild animals are at risk due to wildlife trafficking, habitat destruction, deforestation, and other forms of exploitation. Each of us have an important role to play in protecting the lives of wild animals. In honor of Wildlife Conservation Day, we’ve created list of ways to take action for wild animals!

It’s #WildlifeConservationDay, and each of us have an important role to play in protecting wild animals. You can Take Action for Wild Animals every day by:

  • Sharing What You Learn. Share this action list with your colleagues, friends and family who are interested in protecting animals. Many people are unknowingly contributing to the suffering of animals and harm to the planet. As they say, those who know better, do better. Pro Tip: Lead by example to show others what is possible.
  • Supporting the Global Law Alliance. Our Global Law Alliance for Animals and the Environment are champions for wild animals, working on the ground to change law and policy to better protect wild animals and equipping the next generation with the skills to protect wild animals and wild spaces. Learn more in this interview by Pamela Hart, CALS’ Executive Director, of Clinical Professor Erica Lyman, Director of the Global Law Alliance. Pro Tip: Consider supporting our wild animal protection work through the Global Law Alliance by donating.


The Center for Animal Law Studies (CALS) was founded in 2008 with a mission to educate the next generation of animal law attorneys and advance animal protection through the law. With vision and bold risk-taking, CALS has since developed into a world-renowned animal law epicenter, with the most comprehensive animal law curriculum offered anywhere. In addition, CALS is the only program that offers an advanced legal degree in animal law and three specialty Animal Law Clinics. CALS recently launched the Global Law Alliance for Animals and the Environment, as champions for wild animals and wild spaces, in collaboration with Lewis & Clark Law School’s #1 ranked Environmental Law Program. CALS is a fully self-funded nonprofit organization operating under the Lewis & Clark College 501(c)(3) tax-exempt status, and is only able to provide these educational opportunities through donations and grants.
