Wildlife International

The laws and regulations designed to protect wildlife are meant to ensure species survival and biodiversity. Healthy wildlife populations are crucial to the balance of nature.


Laws and regulations designed to protect wildlife are legislated by various levels of government, including federal, provincial, state, regional and local authorities.

The extent and enforcement of these laws vary from country to country and region to region.

Treaties are legal agreements between branches of government or between international governments.

Most government websites offer information on laws pertaining to the hunting and possession of wildlife, although not all governments have legislation pertaining to wildlife rehabilitation.
