This study explores the intricate layers of meanings lived out by men in tropical environments. These men, having adopted positions as 'environmentalists', see themselves more in tune with 'nature' than with 'culture'. The paper documents some of the discursive strategies used to disrupt, momentarily, the deep intractable culture‐nature binary that characterises western thought about, and within, landscapes. The project of these male environmentalists is to redefine themselves as beings within landscapes, as knowers and lovers, not exploiters and abusers of landscapes. The text of the men's talk about their embodied selves holds revolutionary possibilities in that it tells of linkages and connections, of action in and of the world, through which new alignments can be glimpsed.
