Urban Wildlife in New York City - Law and Policy

Brooklyn Law School Student Animal Legal Defense Fund (BLS SALDF) Presents:Urban Wildlife in New York City - Law and Policy.

Since the "Miracle on the Hudson" crash of a U.S. Airways plane in 2009 caused by a collision with migrating Canada geese, NYC has instituted broad lethal wildlife management strategies, not limited to concerns about aviation safety. These policies have been controversial due to concerns about animal welfare and a lack of merit that lethal approaches are most effective or even necessary. 

David Karopkin, BLS 2L, will present an overview of the issue, applicable laws, and discuss the work of GooseWatch NYC, the organization he founded.

Ken Paskar, Aviation Expert and President of Friends of La Guardia Airport will be on hand to answer questions relating to aviation safety.

Piper Hoffman, BLS Animal Law Professor, will speak about how students can apply an interest in animal protection as a law student or attorney.

A (vegan) lunch will be served.
