Mari Margil – Who Speaks for the Trees? | Bioneers

Attorney Mari Margil chronicles the game-changing work to recognize the Rights of Nature in law. Whereas now nature is considered property subject to private property law, the Rights of Nature legal framework enshrines the right of nature “to exist, persist and thrive.” Margil invokes the Dr. Seuss classic, The Lorax, who asks, “Who will speak for the trees?”

This talk was presented at the 2009 Bioneers Annual Conference.
