Stapleton, Sarah Riggs; Lynch, Kathryn – Journal of Environmental Education, 2021
We join scholars who criticize the Western separation of humans and the more-than-human (MtH) and believe that an emphasis on the MtH within students' local community is supported by repeated exposure. We take an ethnographic approach to study a collaborative program between a university, a local nonprofit, and a US public elementary school that…

Ballouard, J.-M.; Conord, M.; Johany, A.; Jardé, N.; Caron, S.; Deleuze, S.; Bonnet, X. – Journal of Environmental Education, 2020
The likeability of organisms is an effective tool for conservation education. However, stimulating the cute appeal of animals can also bolster the desire to possess them, and thus can encourage the trade in animals as pets. We assessed the perception of primary French schoolchildren (7-11 years old) for the Hermann tortoise (Testudo hermanni), a…
