All nations have a stake in preserving biodiversity for ethical, medical, and economic reasons. This thesis discusses objections to the Convention on Biological Diversity and argues for establishing international agreements that set conservation standards to which all parties can be held accountable. These agreements should also include internationally accepted standards for the protection of intellectual property rights.
