Pro Bono > Environmental Protection and Animal Rights

Our pro bono practice is not limited to advocating for individual people or entities.  Akin Gump attorneys have helped to protect animals from abuse, particularly from “kill shelters” that exterminate animals that cannot readily be placed with a permanent caretaker.  Our lawyers also work on environmental conservation matters.  For instance, we work closely with Oceana, a leading marine conservation organization, in ensuring that U.S. government agencies properly discharge their duty to protect fisheries and other marine habitats.
