10th IWLC Redux

The Annual International Wildlife Law Conference, now in its tenth year, was held in




on 6 and 7 March 2008, attracting a host of leading specialists in this field drawn from both sides of the


. The first day of the Conference considered the operationalisation of the precautionary principle in international wildlife conservation and management regimes and the practical measures taken to address climate change taken through fisheries and wildlife management organisations, demonstrating progress (and impediments to it) experienced to date through a series of practical case studies. The second day of the Conference took on a decidedly more marine approach, examining the current status and future development of marine protected areas, followed by an examination of key aspects of the vexed issue of cetacean conservation regimes. The Conference closed with a keynote address by Professor David VanderZwaag, examining the inconsistent progress made to date in applying the precautionary principle/approach to fisheries management. Many of the papers growing out of the conference will be published in a special symposium issue of the Journal of International Wildlife Law & Policy, www.jiwlp.com.

The Eleventh installment of this Conference will be convened in March 2009 at


University's School of Law

in Gulfport,


; a call for papers for this event will be issued shortly. Please contact the conference's coordinator, Dr. Wil Burns, wburns@scu.edu, to be placed on the mailing list.
