The Nonhuman Rights Project

The Nonhuman Rights Project (NhRP) is a civil rights organization based in the United States, working to secure legally recognized fundamental rights for nonhuman animals such as apes, cetaceans, and elephants, through litigation, advocacy, and education. We discuss the NhRP's legal attempts to use the writ of habeas corpus to attain legal personhood for animals with Steven Wise, the Founder and President of The Nonhuman Rights Project and Kevin Schneider, the NhRP’s Executive Director.
