Lex pernis apivorus: an experiment of environmental law methodology (J. Ebbeson)

Author

Jonas Ebbesson

Keywords

Environment, Animals, Birds, Conservation, EC law, Habitats, International environmental law

Abstract

Analyses the effectiveness of nature conservation law by tracking the migration of the honey buzzard from its breeding ground in Sweden, across continental Europe through to its winter in Africa. Identifies national, regional and international environmental legislation applicable to its protection at various stages in this journey. Compares their effectiveness, looking at institutional structures and compliance control as well as the text of the obligations. Stresses that the protection of the honey buzzard’s habitats are more significant for the species’ welfare than a prohibition on hunting and that emphasis on sustainable forestry and protection of the entire forest environment is what is required.

Limitations of European Union policy and law for regulating use of lead shot and sinkers: comparisons with North American regulation (V.G. Thomas and R. Guitart)

Keywords

Animal, Environment, Birds, Canada, Conservation, EU Law, Hunting, Lead poisoning, United States

Abstract

Summarises the efforts of EU Member States to restrict the use in hunting of lead shot and sinkers, known to be toxic to wild birds, and compares policy and regulation in the US and Canada. Considers the limitations in this context of the EU framework on wild bird conservation, the regulation of hunting and the control of hazardous chemicals, and discusses the reasons why no specific instrument banning toxic lead products in recreational shooting and angling has been introduced. Suggests how the European Parliament might address this issue.
