Gaines, Loyola University New Orleans College of Law, as she discusses how national and international policies fail to implement the idea of sustainability into protecting ecosystems that are continuously overexploited to their own detriment, while exploring how this oversight impacts species in different parts of our natural world. A brief Q&A to follow.
