Abstract

This article draws on participant observation and interview fieldwork and socioeconomic scholarship to critically examine the dual processes of making and unmaking lively companion commodities, at ARCAS Wildlife Rehabilitation Center in northern Guatemala. It suggests that commodification and decommodification are not processes of “denaturing” and “renaturing,” respectively. Rather, they are both productions of particular natures. It considers the differential contours and subjects of these natures, as well as their ecological and ethical stakes, concluding by suggesting that the collapse of the culture–nature dualism should not preclude acknowledgment of nonhuman animals’ wildness and the violence that can attend its attrition
