Future Fables: Lessons from Other Animals

Curated by Ceridwen Dovey and Zoë Sadokierski from Animal Allegories.

“Leathery Little Saints” is a comic story curated for Animal Allegories’ Future Fables: Lessons from Other Animals project. The off-kilter stories that make up the Future Fables  collection are intended to open up new thresholds for considering how humans relate to the more-than-human species around us. These stories emerged alongside another project Animal Allegories is developing with the Australian Museum, titled “Survival Stories: Threatened Species and the Scientists Who Study Them.” Visit the Animal Allegories page for more information about Future Fables.

Humans and Nature Press Digital is honored to present Future Fables as an ongoing digital story gallery highlighting a variety of text, audio, video, and artwork capturing the power of human and nature encounters and connections. Stay tuned for more fables to come.
