The militarisation of conservation

Survival International is an NGO dedicated to protecting the lives and lands of indigenous people around the globe. One of their latest campaigns directly accuses popular conservation organizations, like the World Wildlife Fund (WWF), of what it calls “Green Militarism.” We’ll talk with Survival International Director, Stephen Corry. He says, “Indigenous tribes have long been thought of by some conservationists as ‘in the way’ of the environment. They’re termed ‘poachers’ and abused accordingly”. (Photo: Flickr/Geoff Livingston)
