The Animal Law Society at UCLA Law School will host a Bohnett Animal Law lecture by actress and conservationist Tippi Hedren today from 12:15 to 1:15 in room 1430. The lecture is free to the public.
Hedren serves as President of the Roar Foundation, guiding the organization’s efforts to increase the public’s knowledge about wildlife in our world. The Roar Foundation also maintains the Shambala Preserve, the only wild animal preserve of its kind in the United
States. Shambala Preserve provides a haven for endangered exotic big cats.
Hedren also has testified before the House Resources Committee and was instrumental in passing The Captive Wildlife Safety Act, which she co-authored. The Act makes it illegal to transport exotic cats across state lines or U.S. borders. In addition, Ms. Hedren has co-authored another bill, “A Federal Ban to Stop The Breeding Of The Exotic Felines For Personal Possession” which will be introduced to Congress in the very near future.
UCLA Law School is located near the intersection of Hilgard Avenue and Wyton. Parking is $8.
