This is a comparative study of the laws effecting endangered species, global warming, and air and water pollution in nine different countries around the world including the United States. Other countries covered are Austria, China, India, Nigeria, Singapore, Taiwan, and the United Kingdom. Each chapter focuses on the legal structure of wildlife protection laws, the groups working to protect wildlife, and local human activities that affect wildlife and how these activities are regulated. While there are huge differences between the laws of many of the countries, there are also basic similarities that seem to hold true for societies throughout the world.
