    • The ‘convivial conservation’ model is being developed by a consortium of researchers led by Büscher and Fletcher (2019). Convivial conservation provides a valuable critique of existing conservation paradigms, policies and practices. It offers an alternative approach based on the root causes of wildlife trafficking and integrating local knowledge. Convivial conservation is a context-focused model that challenges colonial and market-based approaches. The focus is on building long-lasting, engaging and open-ended relationships with nonhumans and ecologies. Accordingly, the solution to protecting nature’s value is to build an integrated (economic, social, political, ecological, cultural) value system that does not depend on systemic destruction of but on ‘living with’ nonhuman nature (and on ‘living with’ the unpredictability of safety/unsafety). This on-line video provides an overview of the approach.
