Abstract

This article examines green militarization, rhino anti-poaching efforts and the spatial contours of Kruger National Park. It illustrates how the spatial qualities of protected areas matter immensely for the convergence of conservation and militarization and the concrete forms this convergence takes. These include its status as a national park framed by a semiporous international border and its expansive, often dense terrain. It equally shows how spatial contours authorize militarization only once they articulate with particular assumptions and values; for Kruger these amount to political–ecological values regarding the nation-state, its sovereignty, and its natural heritage. The result is an intensifying interlocking of conservation and militarization that frequently produces unforeseen consequences
