Short summary
Based on qualitative fieldwork we analyse the struggles that enfold around the predicted extinction of a herd of wild horses in the Namib Desert. Our investigation shows that the conflictual border work around questions of whether and with what means humans should intervene appears also as an incorporated practice of subjects. Thus, we suggest repositioning research and nature conservation practice towards learning about, and with, the lived bodies of all actors involved.
