Cetacean Rights

Personenrecht : Wale und Delfine
Cetacean Rights : Whales and Dolphins

Trotz einigerFormen von Erhaltungsmaßnahmen werden Wale und Delfine derzeit als zu erntende Ressourcen behandelt. Und doch weisen viele Elemente in eine andere Richtung.

Es ist Zeit für Rechte der Wale und Delfine, Rechte für die "Personen der Ozeane"!

Die Deklaration "Cetacean Rights" bekommt seine Gültigkeit wenn Regierungen sie in ihren Gesetzbücher niederschreiben. Die mehrheit der Regierungen wird es hoffentlich bald tun.

Das video ist in englisch, Sie sollten es sich aber trotzdem anschauen.

Es folgt nächstens die deutsche Übersetzung und in 2-3 anderen sprachen, u. a. japanisch und norwegisch.

Cetacean Rights : Whales and Dolphins

In spite of some forms of conservation measures, cetaceans are currently treated as resources to be harvested.  And yet, many elements point in a different direction.

International law manifests a growing sense of duty to whales and dolphins; contemporary ethical reflection brings new theoretical tools to bear on cetacean moral status; and scientific research gives us novel insights into the complexities of cetacean minds and societies.

Dolphins and whales are the MOST human-like creatures in the ocean. Like man, they have intelligence, language, self-awareness and complex bahaviours. Chris Butler-Stroud, says and we quote: "We advocate for treating dolphins and whales as 'non-human persons' and protecting them with law". He will present a very alluring case to why dolphins should be accepted as sapient beings.

In the light of this, scholars from the relevant disciplines drew together to spell out all the implications of such developments, and to build a collective case for the attribution of basic moral and legal rights to cetaceans, great and small.

Based on the principle of the equal treatment of all persons; Recognizing that scientific research gives us deeper insights into the complexities of cetacean minds, societies and cultures; Noting that the progressive development of international law manifests an entitlement to life by cetaceans; We affirm that all cetaceans as persons have the right to life, liberty and wellbeing.

All countries have to  grant the rights of cetaceans.
