This is a chapter commissioned for the international art+environment conference and exhibition Late Harvest catalogue 2014 based at the Nevada Museum of Art, Reno, Nevada. In this essay we (Snæbjörnsdóttir/Wilson discuss the implications to perceptions of ecology by the habitual use of the term 'We' to signify specifically human populations and needs rather than interspecific networks when we report and discuss global environmental degradation. Also, in our belated attempts to steward, care for, or 'repair' environments, and when we transform individual animals and animal populations considered to be ‘endangered’ from beings and societies into data, what of consequence is really captured—and, more importantly, what is lost?
