Rabbits and the anguish of wildlife ethics

Continuing with the theme “otherkind”, I was looking again at Freya Mathews’ challenging article “The Anguish of Wildlife Ethics” a revised version of her Val Plumwood Lecture given at the Australian Animal Studies Group Conference in Queensland in 2011. How do animal ethics and environmental ethics conflict and converse? There are no easy answers as Mathews’ makes clear. If you have time, read Mathews’ article and then the remixes of Plath and Hughes in Stuart Barnes’ and Michele Seminara’s The Rabbit Catcher. What other writing might our complex engagements with Country, conservation, reclamation, and otherkind, feral and faunal, call forth?
