About the Blog
The Centre for Research in Environmental Law strives to promote outstanding research in Environmental Law. In lieu of this CREL Blog provide an opportunity for all the legal and social science fraternity to share their experiences and opinion on the contemporary issues of Environmental concern.
We humans inhabit the earth, along with millions of other species. We have an economic system which helps in the survival of the human species, but at what cost? We end up treating the other species like slaves and we even kill them only for your economic benefits.
Indeed, it helps us but at the same time it is the worst thing possible for the Earth and the Environment at large. And when mother Earth loses, it is the loss of the whole humanity.
The theme “Wildlife Trade: A Massive Catastrophe” mainly focuses on the adversities that are being faced by the animals due to short term luxury of a person. We need to stop the killings and poaching of animals for the greater good.
Aim of the Blog
The theme aims to provide an opportunity for all the legal and social science fraternity to share their experiences and opinion on the Forest issues around the globe.
