Abstract

The Nonhuman Rights Project is challenging the “thinghood” of all nonhuman animals by demanding that courts declare such nonhuman animals as great apes, elephants, and cetaceans to be “legal persons,” who possess the fundamental right to bodily liberty that is protected by the common law writ of habeas corpus.
