Wild Animals in Captivity

M.J. Barrett, PhD; Associate Professor at the School of Environment and Sustainability at the University of Saskatchewan describes Intuitive Interspecies Communication (IIC) as:

a method of connecting and intuitively exchanging information with non-human animals using a highly complex set of intuitive skills. IIC occurs across many cultures and is growing in use in contemporary wildlife rehabilitation, conservation, veterinary care, and is often used for resolving human-animal conflicts in domestic contexts. While IIC can occur while in direct physical proximity to a non-human animal, it can also occur over great distances and does not require face-to-face encounters nor the visual, auditory, voice or other cues humans normally associate with interactive communication. Illustrations of IIC are reported across many fields and cultures, but it is currently under-researched.[1]

Wildlife Sanctuaries

I can talk to wild animals in captivity (in rescue and rehabilitation centres, sanctuaries and release programs); to allow their voices to be heard, to advocate for their rights as equals and to ease the challenges they face as wild beings living in a man-made environment, with all the pressures that entails. I do not replace any vet’s advice but I am able to explore any ailments the animal maybe suffering from in more detail in order to alleviate pain and keep animals informed of any necessary procedures taking place.

I can also let the animals know about timings if they are part of a release programme and warn them of potential threats such as poaching and nearby human activity that may cause them harm once they are released. I am able to facilitate a two-way conversation about a diverse range of subjects; informing the animal about why they are being kept in captivity, discussing their food regimes, housing, breeding programs, social aspects and even touching on subjects such as past traumas and events that may have a bearing on the challenges they are facing right now.

Charities, Environmental Agencies and Ethical Law Firms

Sometimes, whole eco-systems need to be supported, defended, legally protected and managed and I have a dream that one day all Beings will be represented in Courts of Law. I am available for consultations with animal charities, environmental agencies and ethical law firms specialising in representing the rights of forests, mountains, coral-reefs, glaciers etc. and the mammals, birds, insects, fish, invertebrates and plants found in/on them. This work can take place remotely, I therefore do not need to travel to be in the presence of any animal in need. I also am in the process of setting up a ‘working party’ which hopes to listen to the suggestions of animals in real situations where human-centric solutions may not be enough for the highest interests of all concerned.

My name is Louisa and I am an interspecies empath, providing communication services for domestic, companion, farm, sanctuary, zoo and wild animals, in order to fully support them and their guardians’ needs. I am also working to increase awareness of animal sentience and advance the legal rights and ‘personhood’ of nature by setting up dialogues with environmental agencies, charities and ethical law firms to give animals who need to speak out about the situation they find themselves in, a voice.
