Counting Species

Chapter 4 compares the rise of two new initiatives, urban biodiversity and rewilding, in the context of a more explicitly designed global nature made by humans. Looking both at global policy initiatives and at New York City as a local case, the chapter considers how urban biodiversity is a comparatively new object of environmental governance. Pointing towards a new politics of wilding, the chapter also considers how rewilding as a form of practicing biodiversity might able to be less beholden to the technical, market-driven, and anti-political processes considered in the preceding chapters.
