Conservationists in many parts of the world are attempting to conserve what they take to be wilderness, but increasing evidence suggests that the territories involved are or were cultural landscapes, created as much by human activity as nature.
Most conservationists have been reluctant to open their eyes to discover nature's resilience and powers of recovery - still less to recognize the role of specialist colonizers and nonnative species in that process. This blinkered approach complicates their wish to protect and revive nature by excluding a wide range of options for rebooting the wild. ... Nature has little regard for conservationists' love of what they see as the pristine. For nature, it matters not a jot where a species comes from, if it does a useful job. If conservationists don't wake up quickly, they risk becoming the enemies of nature rather than its saviours.
