This paper examines, through an online survey and three semi-structured interviews, the topic of conflicts over governmental conservation work.

The main objectives of the paper have been to study to what extent conflicts is an element of the everyday governmental conservation work, and how the government officials look upon the phenomena.

The study shows that almost 80 % of the government officials who took part in the survey had experienced a ”destructive conflict” in their profession. The interviews highlight how complex, social realities affect the work of the conservation authorities.

The conclusions of the paper are that the government officials concerned with nature conservation are highly exposed to conflicts in their work, and that many, although not all, consider the conflicts a problem. The possibility of overcoming the conflicts is a question of interpersonal relations, but it also entails larger questions of the individual subjects position in the liberal state and the discursive room for common, collective interests.
