Flyer 3 ans du sanctuaire.jpg

In 3 years, the Co&xister sanctuary has changed the lives of so many individuals, animals and humans that it would be impossible to put a number on it. So rather than talk about numbers, we're offering you a unifying immersion to celebrate this special anniversary!

This is an opportunity to thank you all, to show you around in small groups and to celebrate the joys of coexistence together over a juice and a "taillé trop bon".


Wonderful stands are waiting for you: plant-based bakery, drinks, care products, pastries, jewellery, flash tattoos, etc.!


We look forward to welcoming you there ♥️ 

For egalitarian interspecies bonds

The association Co&xister, created in 2018 by Virginia Markus and Pierrick Destraz, has the mission to accompany humans and animals in learning to live together in a way that respects the needs of both. Its goal is to implement antispeciesist and ecologist values in a concrete and practical way. Thus showing that inter-species coexistence is not only possible, it is even necessary and life-saving for all living beings!

"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."
