Wild Profusion synopsis
Wild Profusion tells a great story about the conservation of biodiversity in Indonesia in the decade that culminated in major fires in 1997-1998 - a time when the country's environment has become a point of concern for social and environmental activists, scientists, and many national fishermen and farmers who have suffered from degraded environments They faced charges that they were destroying nature. Celia Lowe argued that in the 1990s, Indonesia had a special affinity between nature, nation, science and identity, which made Indonesians plan for a distinct concept within the framework of transnational conservation practices at the time.
Lowe lists the efforts of Indonesian biologists to document the types of the Tojan Islands, to "develop" the people of Tujan, and to turn this archipelago into the Sulawesi coast into a national park. Indonesian scientists aspire to conservationbiology that has been internationally known and politically effective in the Indonesian context.
At the same time, Lowe describes the experiences of the Togane Sama people who had a special understanding of nature and nation. To put Sama and the world in the same conceptual framework, Lowe studies Sama's ideas in the context of trans-boundary thought rather than local knowledge.
In tracking the practice of conservationbiology in a postcolonial environment, Wild Profusion explores what can be considered important in nature and for whom.
