This article examines the new spaces for nature through the re-territorialisation of biodiversity conservation under neoliberalism in the UK. It explains that a series of projects developed by non-governmental conservation organisations seek to extend conservation management over larger areas of land. In this paper it considers these developments as a form of re-territorialisation, a reframing and extension of conservation's spatial claims. It describes how conservation's ambitions have been reformed and extended and discuss evidence on the growth of large-scale biodiversity conservation projects in the UK. It then considers the implications of these changes in the light of the neoliberalisation of conservation
