Being Prey is a short, nonfiction text written by Australian environmental activist, feminist, and later, philosophical animist, Val Plumwood. It details her account of canoeing through Kakadu National Park, Australia, in 1985, and being attacked by a saltwater crocodile. Plumwood is also the author of Feminism and the Mastery of Nature and Environmental Culture: The Ecological Crisis of Reason. Professor Deborah Bird Rose, a Fellow of the Academy of Social Sciences in Australia, wrote of Plumwood, ‘She was one of the great intellects of the late 20th century; she is included in the Routledge publication Fifty Key Thinkers on the Environment, along with Gandhi, Buddha, and others.’
