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.

Govt prepares preservation for Sumatra Tigers

Antara News, Saturday, August 28, 2010 19:52 WIB

Bengkulu  (ANTARA News) - In dealing with Sumatran tiger attacks to housing complexes in Sumatra island, the Forestry Ministry planned to move the endangered species to three national parks, an official said.

"We have prepared three national parks as new home to the tigers," Director General of Conservatory Forest`s Security, Darori, said here on Saturday after attending the release of a previously captured Sumatran tiger to the Bukit Barisan Selatan national park area.

Darori said the three new habitats for the existing Sumatran tiger were Kerinci Seblat national park (Jambi province), Gunung Leuser national park (Aceh province) and Bukit Barisan Selatan national park (Lampung province).

He said the three parks covered a vast areas about 2 million hectares in average that the tigers would not have food shortage. Sufficient food, Darori said, would avoid the tigers from trying to enter people`s house to look for something to eat.

Previously, the Forestry Minister Zulkifli Hasan said Indonesia which was known as a mega biodiversity country had recently witnessed a shrink in the population of its rare species due to deforestation.

He said the number of Indonesia`s endangered animals such as Sumatran tigers, Javanese rhinoceroses, and orangutans has dwindled because of deforestation activities conducted by the private sector as well as local communities.

The minister said the number of Sumatran tigers which was 800 heads in 2005, now is only around 400, while the Javanese tiger has totally become extinct.

The population of Sumatran elephants, which was 8,000 heads in 2000, now is only 2,000, and rhinoceros, which was about 40-50, is around 60 heads currently.

In order to help preserve the rare species, the forestry ministry has planned to develop 30 million hectares areas into forest conservation ones, according to the minister.

The ministry has also launched primary forests covering 43 million hectares, he said.
"These (primary) forests could not be converted into other purposes and it should be declared moratorium," he said.
