Okay, so I’m going through all the supplemental notes, and I’m wondering if anyone has a clever way to distinguish the following pieces of legislation and if someone can double-check the accuracy of my shortened definitions of each piece of legislation.
Wilderness Act of 1964: restrictions on activities done in an area
National Environmental Policy Act 1969: consider environmental impacts when there are proposed federal projects
CITES: treaty (species approach)
CBD: treaty (ecosystem approach)
Lacey Act: civil/criminal penalties given
