Conservation and Extractivism: Two Sides of the Same Coin. Podcast from CONVIVA’s Finland team
What, if anything, has conservation got to do with extractivism? What are some of the more general phenomena that shape the way we as modern humans living in capitalist societies relate to non-human “nature”?
Sanna Komi, from the University of Helsinki, Finland, discussed these questions along with examples from her ongoing PhD research on wolf conservation in an interview for the EXALT podcast, which is out now.
In the episode you can hear some examples of how the image of wolves has changed in Finland over time, what some of the biggest threats to wolf conservation are, and why Sanna thinks that the CONVIVA – convivial conservation research project offers an exciting alternative to current conservation paradigms.
