In the same way that the value of clean air or water has not been taken into account in economic decisions (dismissed as 'externalities'), ecosystems, rivers, plants and other living creatures have not had legal rights. By giving nature legal status, 'wild law' puts the long-term interests of the whole Earth community ahead of what people or corporations want now. It is an idea that has the power to revolutionise the way we see ourselves, our place in the world and the rights of nature.
