To date, most authors writing Wild Law have focused on philosophy or proposing alternative or ideal laws. In contrast, this article seeks to understand why legal and governance systems around the world have failed to respond to the climate crisis. It also explores the material conditions necessary for enacting a broad social change project. The objective of the article is to initiate a conversation with advocates of Wild Law about how we can move beyond theory and engage in a collaborative project of ethical praxis.

Keywords: Wild Law, Social Change, Environmental Protection
