TODAY – BRIEFING: The Federal Role in Managing Wildlife on U.S. Public Lands

Please join experts in the field of natural resources law for a briefing on the federal authority to manage wildlife. Historically, there has been disagreement over who has the authority to manage wildlife populations on U.S. public lands. It is a widely
held misconception that states have primary jurisdiction over wildlife on lands owned by the American people and administered by the Departments of the Interior and Agriculture. While states do play a role, federal agencies have an obligation, both legal and
ecological, to manage wildlife on these lands. This panel will explore the tensions between federal and state agencies in managing wildlife on federal lands. We hope you will join us to better learn how these legal authorities should be balanced for the most
effective management of our wildlife resources.

Briefing TODAY: Wildlife Whistleblowing, A Game-Changer in the Enforcement of Wildlife Trafficking Laws

By now, you should have received an invitation to the briefing, Wildlife Whistleblowing: A Game-Changer in the Enforcement of Wildlife Trafficking Laws. Wildlife trafficking is a multibillion dollar international industry, with a low number of arrests and convictions. Unfortunately, traffickers see an opportunity for a large
payout, with a low risk of getting caught.  Incentivizing whistleblowers will revolutionize the detection of wildlife crime, increase effective law enforcement and self-compliance, and reverse the extinction crisis. Please join Stephen
M. Kohn, founder and executive director of the National Whistleblower Center, for an informative briefing on wildlife whistleblower laws, how these laws will impact the detection of wildlife crimes, and what actions are needed for the
responsible agencies to effectively implement them.
