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.

Illegal trading in endangered species still rife in RI

Antara News, Monday, January 11, 2010 21:11 WIB

Malang, E Java (ANTARA News) - Although trading in endangered species is illegal and perpetrators face heavy santions if caught, it is still happening openly in many places in Indonesia, a wildlife protection activist said.

ProFauna Indonesia Director Rosek Nursahid said here Monday protected endangered species trading was a violation of Law No. 5 of 1990 on the Conservation of Biological Resources and Ecosystems.

"Perpetrators of protected animal trading can be sentenced to up to five years imprisonment and a fine of Rp 100 million , he said.

Yet, the illegal practice still occurs in the open in many places in Indonesia, he added.

According to Nursahid, most of the endangered species traded illegally were captured from their natural habitats and this was increasing the threat of their becoming extinct as the practice was also contributing to the reduction of the areas and the quality of those habitats.

Therefore, Rosek said , it was time to look at illegal wildlife trading as a national issue. "This will ensure the more effective and coordinated enforcement of the law on wildlife protection," he said.

ProFauna Indonesia had previously reported that in 2009 it had rescued or prevented the smuggling of protected animals or parts of them such as scaled anteaters, tiger body parts and primates.

Marine biota such as sea horses, and other types of other marine biota were smuggled to China, Hong Kong and Europe. Other rare animals much sought by illegal traders were turtles and various types of parrot and cockatoo.

According to a survey conducted by ProFauna Indonesia in 70 locations during 2009, a total of 183 endangered species were illegaly traded and smuggled out of the country causing a total loss estimated at Rp10 billion to the state.
