I had a chance to attend an animal communication workshop last february. We visited the Jakarta Ragunan zoo as a “practicum” session by the end of the workshop in groups. A guy call him Nick and a woman call her Yoko were senior participants and they were assigned to the orang-utan area. First Nick came to communicate with one particular orang-utan and he got the image of the orang-utan in a lush forest. The Orang utan missed the forest. And he also sent the message that he is afraid his children won’t see the forest. So Nick did best he can do, bringing the forest to the Orangutan and meeting them both within the consciousness level. Not long after that Yoko came and happened to pick the same orang-utan to communicate with and ask him if he wants to say anything. The Orang utan said please send thank you to Nick. That was really sad and also a confirmation from another perspective on the denial of, in this case, the Orangutan’s innate rights of a natural habitat.
