This chapter provides a brief overview of green criminology as a theoretical perspective, and of environmental crime as a specific type of crime. Green criminology provides a distinctive lens through which to explore and explain environmental harm, one that includes reference to activities that transgress the rights and well-being of humans, specific ecosystems, and animal and plant species regardless of legality. The chapter provides examples of environmental crime that can be seen in both Australia and New Zealand and considers the crime of ecocide in relation to practices contributing to climate change.
