Animal Diplomacy Bureau (ADB) seeks to cultivate better Human—Animal Relations.

 

ADB believes that is time that we begin to repair and foster relationships on a species to species level. As Vinciane Despret has written, we need to "create a relationship that will make beings of different species become corresponding, not to, but with each other." We need to leave behind the Human-Centered narratives of the Anthropocene and enter what Donna Haraway calls the "Chthulucene". The Chthulucene is characterized by its focus on multi-species stories and practices of becoming-with, but most importantly hierarchy is upended, "human beings are with and of the earth".
