Not surprisingly, the second annual Canadian Animal Law Conference, held this past weekend, looked quite different from the conference held at the Schulich School of Law at Dalhousie last year. Due to pandemic restrictions, this year’s event, presented by Animal Justice and the University of Toronto Faculty of Law, was of course held entirely online. Though disappointing for participants who weren’t able to gather and network and enjoy panels and speakers in person at the University of Toronto as planned, the online platform provided its own unique benefits.

Via Pheedloop, this year’s conference offered almost twice as many panels as the year prior, and hosted nearly 500 participants from all over the world. There were online social events, and participants had the ability to hop between concurrently running panels. There was also an even wider range of topics, from “Tiger Kings and Trafficking Rings: Combating Wildlife Crime and Exploitation” to “Veganism, Dairy, and Decolonization;” and “Animals & the Carceral State” to “The Costs and Benefits of Being Forgotten: Fish and Aquatic Invertebrate Science and Policy.”
