Question: Dear Kryon: I live in Spain. I am sorry if I will ask you a question you might have already answered, but the translations of your books are very slow and I might not have gathered all information you have already given. I am quite concerned about abandoned animals. It seems that many people buy animals for their children and as soon as they grow, they set them out somewhere. Recently I had the occasion to see a small kitten in the middle of the street. I did not immediately react, since I could have stopped and taken it, without getting out of the car. So, I went on and at the first occasion I could turn, I went back to see if I could take the kitten, but it was to late, somebody had already killed it. This happened some month ago, but I still feel very sorry for that kitten. I just would like to know, what kind of entity are these animals and how does this fit in our world. Are these entities which choose this kind of life, like we do choose our kind of Human life? I see so many abandoned animals and every time I see one, my heart aches... I would like to know more about them.

Answer: Dear one, indeed the answer has been given, but let us give it again so you all understand. Animals are here on earth for three (3) reasons.

(1) The balance of biological life. . . the circle of energy that is needed for you to exist in what you call "nature."

(2) To be harvested. Yes, it's true. Many exist for your sustenance, and this is appropriate. It is a harmony between Human and animal, and always has. Remember the buffalo that willingly came into the indigenous tribes to be sacrificed when called? These are stories that you should examine again. The inappropriateness of today's culture is how these precious creatures are treated. Did you know that if there was an honoring ceremony at their death, they would nourish you better? Did you know that there is ceremony that could benefit all of humanity in this way. Perhaps it's time you saw it.

(3) To be loved and to love. For many cultures, animals serve as surrogate children, loved and taken care of. It gives Humans a chance to show compassion when they need it, and to have unconditional love when they need it. This is extremely important to many, and provides balance and centering for many.

Do animals know all this? At a basic level, they do. Not in the way you "know," but in a cellular awareness they understand that they are here in service to planet earth. If you honor them in all three instances, then balance will be the result. Your feelings about their treatment is important. Temper your reactions with the spiritual logic of their appropriateness and their service to humanity. Honor them in all three cases.

Release Orangutans Before It’s Too Late, Minister Says

Jakarta. Forestry Minister Zulkifli Hasan on Monday vowed to speed up issuing permits for orangutan release areas in Central Kalimantan, saying the longer they were kept in cages, the harder it would be for them to adapt to their natural habitat.

Around 611 orangutans are still in cages at the Nyaru Menteng orangutan rehabilitation center in Palangkaraya, Central Kalimantan, managed by the Borneo Orangutan Survival Foundation.

Of these, 141 are ready for release into the wild. However, there are still difficulties in finding a suitable habitat for the apes.

The BOS Foundation, a non-profit organization established in 1991, has been focusing on reintroducing orangutans to their natural environment at its rehabilitation centers.

So far, around 300 orangutans have been released in East Kalimantan province. “I appreciate what BOS is doing here, but we can't keep [the orangutans] here for long, considering that there are limits to their resilience,” Zulkifli said after a short visit to Nyaru Menteng.

“They could get too stressed and end up dead in the cages.”

In Central Kalimantan, Zulkifli added, many forest areas had been converted into palm oil plantations — monoculture forests where the orangutan has no chance of survival.

“So one of the solutions is to find places where they can be released immediately,” he said. “We’ve found suitable locations for their release,” he added, citing an area of 106,450 hectares in East Kalimantan, previously granted to timber companies Mugitriman and Narkata.

Zulkifli also identified areas of 94,000 hectares managed by Akhates Plywood and 68,000 hectares managed by Tunggul Pemenang in Central Kalimantan.

“We’ll try to find other locations to replace those areas because [the companies are not at fault],” he said, adding that if the companies did not agree to the proposition, their concessions would be revoked.

Fransiska Sulistiwo, a veterinarian at Nyaru Menteng, said the rehabilitation center was already overpopulated as it had been designed to accommodate a maximum of 300 orangutans.

“The main problem is to find the right location to release them,” Fransiska said, adding that orangutans needed to be released into primary forests.

Hadi Daryanto, the Forestry Ministry’s director general of forest production, said the government had already issued an “ecosystem restoration” permit that would allow the orangutans to be released into the wild.
