Abstract

Rene Descartes’ teachings influence the trend of environmental crises in the modern era causing harm to animals by human activities. In line with this thought, animals are considered only as properties instead of a subject of environmental law. Such thinking is the major criticism of ecofeminism. This study is a qualitative using juridical normative approach with the specification of descriptive-analytical research. The result found that there are three possibilities of legal status for animals in the study of environmental ethics and ecofeminism including status as a property for human needs, as property but its welfare must be guaranteed and as a legal subject. The animal status prospectus as a legal subject of environmental law in Indonesia in the study of ecofeminism can be done in two methods, namely reconstruction of environmental laws and court ruling.
