CO & XISTER ASSOCIATION
THE CO&XISTER SANCTUARY CELEBRATES ITS 2ND ANNIVERSARY!
To celebrate this special anniversary, we will be holding a week of events from 22 to 29 August 2021. Most of these events will require advance booking. The programme, descriptions and practical information can be found here.
We look forward to seeing you there, to sharing and celebrating together this utopia come true. Our reality, that of the animals who live and have lived at the sanctuary, and yours in a way!
For egalitarian interspecies bonds
The mission of Co&xister is to support humans and animals in learning to live together in a way that respects everyone's needs. Its aim is to implement the antispeciesist and ecological values advocated by militant movements, in the idea of a convergence of social struggles.
A common ambition
With a common objective of showing in a concrete way how humans and animals can coexist together, after leaving the relationship of domination and exploitation on which their historical relationship was based, Virginia Markus and Pierrick Destraz decided to take action by creating the association Co&xister.
This shows that interspecies coexistence is not only possible, it is even necessary and life-saving regarding to the current ethical and ecological emergencies.

"With regard to the animal question, yes, science has given us a great lesson in humility by showing us, for example, that animals have a conscience. There was even a solemn declaration by biologists and cognitive neuroscientists at a conference in Cambridge in 2012, expressing this very clearly. But was it not until the 2000s and the advances in neuroscience and medical imaging that this conclusion was reached? Thirty seconds alone with a dog or rat is enough to understand it."
