Abstract

This dissertation is an investigation of the role that different identify characteristics can play in one's participation in biodiversity conservation work. This ethnography was conducted using participant observation in Ranomafana, Madagascar at the Centre ValBio Research Station. I conclude that conservation science is imbued with power and authority that are differentially accessible on the basis of the intersection of one's identity characteristics.
