Abstract

This commentary on Irus Braverman’s Wild Life (2015) and Jamie Lorimer’s Wildlife in the Anthropocene (2015), raises some questions about the movement between the authors’ own relational ontologies and the pragmatic or improvised ontologies that surface in their respective ethnographic accounts. It also asks whether an apparent allegiance to an undefiled `Nature’ on the part of some conservationists might be viewed not only in terms of relational networks but also as kind of ontological commitment to the `ground’ of life.
