This inquiry grapples with the complex relations of animal species, people and environments. Research takes place with the everyday lived experiences of children, their families and the animals that permeate their lives. Theoretical borders are tested that traverse humanist, posthumanist and critical realms playing with old and new ontologies, looking for pedagogical resistance. Processes are engaged that energise ethical pedagogy by unsettling animal representation and injustice in ways that spark possibilities for how multispecies relations could be supported in early childhood education, that elevate animal species as crucial earthly companions, co-learners and co-teachers.
