Abstract The conservation enterprise is embedded in ideas of the environ-ment through which it promotes a vision of the world and therelations between the non-human and human. The papers in thisforum analyse conservation from various vantage points to drawthe links between geopolitics and conservation. The authors usethree themes to demonstrate these links. The first theme draws onthe concept of environmentality to show the mobilization of eco-logical rationalities and power towards the creation of protectedareas. The second pays attention to networks formed across thedistance, and how they influence the location and governance ofprotected areas. The third focuses on the strategies the conserva-tion lobby uses to align local identities with global conservationideals and goals. Collectively, these themes highlight features ofconservation geopolitics.
