TED Talk with Steven M. Wise

Watch this TED Talk with Steven M. Wise, the animal rights lawyer from the Nonhuman Rights Project. The talk was filmed in March 2015.

Chimpanzees are people too, you know. Ok, not exactly. But lawyer Steven Wise has spent the last 30 years working to change these animals' status from "things" to "persons." It's not a matter of legal semantics; as he describes in this fascinating talk, recognizing that animals like chimps have extraordinary cognitive capabilities and rethinking the way we treat them — legally — is no less than a moral duty.

Steven Wise: Chimps have feelings and thoughts. They should also have rights
