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.

Five illegal loggers nabbed in Ujung Kulon forest

Antara News, Monday, January 11, 2010 18:06 WIB

Pandeglang (ANTARA News) - Five illegal loggers were nabbed in the Ujung Kulon`s Gunung Honje forest in Pandeglang district, Banten Province, on Sunday night by a joint state police, Ujung Kulon National Park forest rangers and civil security team.

The national park management`s spokesman Agus Priambudi, said here on Monday the five illegal loggers identified by their initials as Akm, Asm, Ddn, Ant, and Arm were nabbed while felling trees in the Gunung Honje forest at 11 pm on Sunday night.

He said the joint security team also seized two truckloads of logs which had been cut by the illegal loggers.

"The five nabbed illegal loggers are still being investigated by Ujung Kulon National Park investigators and the police," Agus Priambudi said, adding the Gunung Honje forest was part of the park which was being preserved as as the habitat of the Java Rhinoceros and some of the world`s lungs.

Ujung Kulon which is rich in wildlife and forests, noted for its charm and diversity, is the home of the highly endangered Java Rhinoceros and bestowed with the status of World Heritage (natural) site.

It posses an exceptional profile of Indonesia`s wilderness from forested mountain ranges to coral seas.

What makes it even more remarkable is that the park remains a pristine haven of nature on Java, one of the most densely populated islands on earth.

The 120,551-hectare park is divided into 78,214 ha of land and 44,337 ha of surrounding reefs and sea.

It can roughly be separated into three areas, the triangular shaped Ujung Kulon Peninsula, the Gunung Honje Range to the east of the Peninsula`s Isthmus and the Island of Panaitan to the north west.

Ujung Kulon`s tropical maritime climate, somewhat cooler than inland areas of Java, produces an annual rainfall of approximately 3250 mm.

The park holds well over 700 species of plant life of which at least 57 of them are classified as rare in Java Island and perhaps the world.

Ujung Kulon National Park has a vast array wildlife, quite a member of which are endangered or rare. Some of animals are so unafraid that freely wander in and around the tourist lodges, others are sighted almost every days, many are heard rather than seen and same core rarely seen.
