  • To produce high quality research that:
    • furthers understanding of child-animal interactions in various contexts, to ensure reciprocally positive relationships and wellbeing,
    • uses a 'One Health', 'One Welfare' approach to examine the inter-relationships between people, animals, and the environment, and
    • has an impact in educational and health/social care settings.

 

  • To work with, learn from, and support practitioners working with children and/or animals.

 

We are always happy to discuss research ideas and help where we can. Please get in touch if you are interested in working with us.
