Environmental Law Project Works to Enforce Migratory Bird Treaty
A recent press release from the Lewis & Clark Law School describes the International Environmental Law Project (IELP)'s petition to the Council for Environmental Cooperation to enforce the Migratory Bird Treaty Act. IELP initiated the petition because courts had ruled that the Forest Service could not be compelled to implement the MBTA in its timber contracts with logging companies. The IELP petition has its roots in student sleuthing. Reports Lewis & Clark, "During the course of IELP's investigation, students uncovered a Fish and Wildlife Service memorandum in which the Fish and Wildlife Service admit[ed] that it has an unwritten policy of not enforcing the MBTA against loggers." The Lewis & Clark press release has more information about the project.
