Kerulos brings research to bear on pivotal on-the-ground education and social justice issues. For these reasons, the Center is well regarded across communities: academia, animal and human rights communities, teachers, and healers.
Our first two years (2009-2010) were devoted to: (1) acquisition of breadth and depth of expertise through building the faculty and Advisory Board; (2) distillation and articulation of the Kerulos vision, mission, and role; and (3) establishing credibility and trust in academic and animal and human activist communities. The latter has been accomplished through in-depth networking, dialogue, and collaboration that produced substantive publications, website, newsletters, and other media.
No longer “just” an organization, Kerulos is a fast-growing, vibrant community. Having laid this foundation, FYs 2012 and 2013 have been dedicated to translating vision to reality by creating two “flagship” programs to elicit wide-ranging, international participation, Sacred Bones and Being Sanctuary. In so doing, considerable headway has been made in catalyzing a new trans-species paradigm.
