Claus will discuss her recent ethnography that details the decade-long transformation in transnational conservation at an Okinawan field station. In shifting from more traditional distancing practices to a “conservation-near” approach, transnational conservationists together with islanders created an unusually inclusive, experiential, and collaborative form of conservation in Okinawa’s coral reefs. The resulting projects were as consequential for conservationists as they were for islanders.
