ECOS 34 (1) Spring 2013. Trump’s golf course – Society’s nature. The death and resurrection of nature conservation. Koen Arts and Gina Maffrey

Abstract: The story of Trump’s golf resort development in Scotland, part of which falls on a protected natural area, is more than just another example of nature succumbing to economics. It symbolises the death of traditional nature conservation as a stand-alone exercise. The new green phoenix that arises from the ashes will need to integrate current, place-based conservation with a (local) green economy and sustainable living.
