Research interests / activities:

My interests are in:

  • the relationships between animals and young children is an area of interest related to early childhood education,
  • what makes an animal a ‘pest’ and how this is then used to encourage cruel practices, especially in educational contexts,
  • animals in tourism and ethical tourism and
  • the issue of live export and activism and how people who protest protect their own wellbeing.
