New forms of nature conservation on private lands
are being introduced in Finland. Instead of establishing
permanent reserves with a predestined vision of
future development and often isolating them from
human productive activities, the new forms of conservation
are based upon situational and sensitive
measures on the processes of life itself. The new paradigm
calls for a new concept to the fore, the space
of appearance, as we call the spatio-temporal association
through which the conservation measures
can be taken jointly after the actors of life processes
have given visibility and tangibility to themselves.
We introduce the space of appearance by exploring
practices and institutional architectures of two
conservation cases in Finnish private forestry: an
experimental forest biodiversity conservation procedure
called the Natural Values Trading and a strict
law-based conservation procedure of the Siberian
flying squirrel. The former leans on voluntary choices
and volitional acts of forest owners and the latter on
the behaviour of an endangered animal with human
companions supporting its critical life processes. To
illustrate the differences between the conventional
and emerging conservation practices, we use freedom
as a conceptual tool in our analysis.
