ELC works 'to transform the law to recognize and protect nature’s inherent rights to exist, thrive and evolve'. Members of the group focus on the rights of nature in law, in order to reverse what they regard as a trend of environmental degradation, and that current environmental laws have been unable to solve this. Ocean Rights are included in their portfolio, which includes a focus on coral reefs, marine pollution, rights of coastal communities, marine protected areas amongst others. They have offices in Washington State, California, Colorado, Mexico City, New York, and Toronto, and operate internationally. On their website are toolkits giving information of various specialist areas such as coral reefs and marine pollution.
