The second chapter explores how, although scientists and cultural theorists have denied or dismissed the sexual diversity of nonhuman animals, they are important for new materialism, animal studies, and queer, green politics. The wonder, awe, and pleasure of contemplating the countless modes of nonhuman sexual diversity, which pulse with desire and erotic ingenuity, may generate environmentalisms that are already fabulously queer.
