Why are corporations given the legal rights of persons, and ecosystems are not?

This could make for a very interesting conversation, especially when considered from an animistic worldview.

“Christopher D. Stone’s 1972 essay, “Should trees have standing?” addressed the question of whether natural objects themselves should have legal rights. In the essay, Stone suggests that his argument is valid because many current rights-holders (women, children) were once seen as objects.” — Wikipedia

Looking forward to checking out these books.
