More than a passion, an evidence.
The encounter with the animal, in its natural environment and whatever it is, has always remained to me as the quintessence of the encounter with this absolute Other that is yet so close to us humans.
Part of my studies in Australian Queensland gave me improbable encounters with wild animals, in addition to my father and grandfather's experiences with foxes and fennecs.
Whatever it is, wild, domestic or hybrid, my goal and my ideal is, on the one hand, that it never feels constrained in domesticity, and on the other hand, that this domesticity is based on a communication that is not anthropocentric, that is to say, that the communication we establish with it is adapted to its own, and not the other way around. It is in this sense that I understand the socialization of young animals.
This is why, in addition to the care and a secure environment that we provide them, it is important for us, humans, to relearn touch, olfaction, hearing, sight, and fine attention to what surrounds us and to the beings that speak to us and whose communication we must try to apprehend with patience.
