Cloning Wild Life

This chapter introduces an alternative articulation of cloning, one that uses cloning as part of an effort to shepherd rather than master endangered animals. It examines the scientific practices that are asserted when male animals produced through interspecies nuclear transfer are classified as part of the endangered species population, but female clones are not. This set of classificatory practices are embodied by the cloned banteng. The chapter first describes what cloning an endangered animal looks like within this set of classificatory practices by focusing on the microlevel practices at the Conservation and Research for Endangered Species's Frozen Zoo. It then turns to the banteng as an experiment in pluralist technology development. The classificatory practices embodied by the cloned banteng attempts to actively address and engage in the politics of cloning endangered animals, while carving out a different kind of wildlife.
