The legal protection of wildlife in war with Saba Pipia

Saba Pipia’s presentation highlights the substantial impact of war on different types of animals, using Russia’s aggression against Ukraine as a recent illustration. It concentrates on three observed trends of animal distress during Russia’s invasion of Ukraine: first, the targeting and destruction of zoo animals; second, the sharp decline of the BlackSea dolphin population; and third, the consumption of pigeons and other domestic animals in areas under siege. These trends are discussed through the lens of relevant international humanitarian law rules.
