New York University (NYU) Environmental Law Journal (ELJ), NYU Environmental Studies Program and the NYU-SCPS M.A. Program in Graphic Communications Management and Technology jointly hosted MANAGED TO EXTINCTION? - A 40th Anniversary Legal Forum assessing the 1971 Wild Free-Roaming Horses & Burros Act (WFRH&BA). Moderated by Dale Jamieson, Professor of Law and Director of the NYU Environmental Studies Program, this panel discussion took place at 6 p.m. on Wednesday evening, November 16th, 2011 at NYU School of Law, Vanderbilt Hall, 40 Washington Square South.
Panelists included (in alphabetical order): Deniz Bolbol, Communications Director, American Wild Horse Preservation Campaign (AWHPC); Ginger Kathrens, Volunteer Executive Director, The Cloud Foundation; Dick Loper, Founder, Association of Rangeland Consultants; Ross MacPhee, Curator, Division of Vertebrate Zoology, American Museum of Natural History (AMNH); Katherine Meyer, Partner, Meyer, Glitzenstein & Crystal; Nancy Perry, Sr. VP, ASPCA Government Relations; and Deanne Stillman, author, Mustang, The Saga of the Wild Horse in the American West.
Brian Korpics, Editor-in-Chief, NYU ELJ, states, “We selected a provocative title for this 40th Anniversary Forum to draw attention to the legal issues surrounding this landmark environmental legislation. Our goal is to provide a neutral setting for open discussion and the expression of a wide range of opinions.”
Forum co-chair, Jan Liverance, a student in the NYU-SCPS M.A. Program in Graphic Communications Management and Technology (GCMT), adds, “We reached out to a broad spectrum of constituencies with invitations to participate in this panel discussion, including the Bureau of Land Management (BLM). To our knowledge, NYU is the only organization planning an event to highlight the 40th Anniversary and assess this 1971 WFRH&B legislation.”
