Living Together
 

“The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way it treats its animals.” (Sri Aurobindo).

It is possible to return to a harmonious cohabitation between men and animals. Our planet offers a natural heritage of great richness and incredible beauty. Beyond simply sounding the alarm, Jean-Charles Vinaj wants to make the greatest number of people aware of the importance of preserving balance and harmony on Earth. To do this, he wanted to rely on very concrete examples of interactions between men and animals. His work’s scenario revolves around four key words: mutualism, symbiosis, tolerance and conflict that can be observed in nature in some remote areas of the world. Today, our biodiversity is fragile. Ensuring the respect and survival of an animal species also means adopting an environmentally responsible attitude and learning to find our proper place. So, if the world of today wants to be environmentally responsible, it must learn to find its place on Earth, while ensuring rights for animals, that is to say, recognizing their vulnerability. The survival of a species also depends on the protection of natural environments.
