Agent of Change

Animal communication encompasses many facets, and many animal lovers don't need research or the latest scientific discovery to tell them what they already know-animals have deep emotional lives and understand more than we know. For example, a lot of people coming for a tour at the sanctuary get so excited when they hear Cameron roar even before they can see him. The excitement reaches a fevered pitch and beckons "oohs and aahs" when they see Zabu.

Zabu is very much aware of the emotions she illicits from the crowd, and life presents an intangible magic as we become aware of the unseen as it unfolds. As the tour guide explains the "myth of the white tiger", people become disgusted, jaws drop, heads nod back and forth, and a discussion of their reality ensues. As Zabu prances, the truth behind her color instantly transforms conditioned beliefs , and a new reality has been woven into the tapestry of a new earth.

Animals always communicate with us. As we question our current beliefs, new possibilities see daylight and empower us to make different choices, always being grateful to the animal as an agent of change.
