Chapter three examines prevalent practices of biodiversity conservation as biopolitics. Focusing on the UK, it explores how biodiversity conservation seeks to secure life through identifying, counting, researching and nurturing populations of species. It presents conservation as oligoptical – framing and performing the world in the shape of partial databases and skillsets.
