Rights of Nature, Rights of Mother Earth,  is the recognition and honoring that Nature has rights.  It is the recognition that our ecosystems – including trees, oceans, animals, mountains – just as human beings do – have the right to exist, persist, maintain and regenerate their vital cycles.  Rights of Nature is about balancing what is good for human beings against what is good for other species, what is good for the planet as a world.  It is the holistic recognition that all life, all ecosystems on our planet are deeply intertwined.

Rather than treating nature as property under the law, rights of nature acknowledges that nature and its ecosystems is a subject of the law with standing.  And we – the people –  have the legal authority and responsibility to enforce these rights on behalf of ecosystems.


Our world is not a society that we inherited from our ancestors, but a society that we borrowed from our children’
