The Ways to Improve the Legal System for Wildlife Protection——From the Perspectives of "Animal Rights Theory" and "Modern Anthropocentrism"

Abstract

China's current wildlife protection legislation is imperfect, there are multiple contradictions between human and wildlife resources. Scientific and reasonable protection of wildlife resources is conducive to economic development and ecological civilization construction. As to whether China should adopt the "theory of animal rights" to formulate relevant laws, this paper discusses the "theory of animal rights" and the legal status of China's wildlife resources protection, and puts forward reasonable suggestions to build a scientific and effective legal system of wildlife resources management and protection.
