dc.description.abstract Different arguments have been raised by various scholars in relation to maintaining biodiversity and assurance of animal welfare. At the mean time several threats were posted against the sustainable development of ecosystems due to unheeded governance of mankind. Certain individuals and various nongovernmental organizations have raised their voice on behalf of nonhuman organisms, to share the environment equally among all living beings amidst severe protests. Yet another threat prevails from harmful and dangerous species such as venomous snakes, communicative insects and uncontrollable species. However still the law has not demarcated any binary between conservable and destroyable species and any legal system has not pronounced appropriate rationale in terms of reserving proportionate portion for each species against human dominance. This paper intends to investigate appropriate demarcation for conservable species based on sustainable development of ecosystems excluding human factor. It strives to resolve the research problem, “Why certain nonhuman species are differently treated while others are legally protected? It covers up with following research questions. “Which are beneficial and which are dangerous? Why certain kind of species are protected while some are allowed to slaughter? Whether the sustainable development of ecosystems is the only factor to ensure the survival of nonhuman organisms. What is the rationale behind the law to implement rules and regulations on behalf of part of the species and whether the principle of equality before the law applicable for nonhumans? Primary objective of this research is to declare legal standing for nonhuman organisms in terms of assuring their wellbeing and to provide proportionately appropriate opportunities for all in spite of human factor. Mainly this research follows the black letter approach.
