The 100 year old Surabaya Zoo in Indonesia has received complaints about its treatment of animals from a number of animal activist groups including the Jakarta Animal Aid Network (JAAN), and also from the interim administrator of the zoo.

In 2010, the situation at the Surabaya Zoo reached a point where The Jakarta Post, a daily English language newspaper in Indonesia, started calling the facility the ‘Surabaya Zoo of Death’. In August, 2010, the Forestry Ministry revoked the Surabaya Zoo’s license to operate after several animal deaths, including the loss of a rare Sumatran tiger, an African lion, wallaby, Komodo dragon, babirusa, Bawean deer and crocodile.

The interim management at the Surabaya Zoo asked the local police and the East Java Natural Resources Conservation Agency (BKSDA) to conduct an investigation into the situation, which found that negligent keepers were to blame for most of the animal deaths.

The interim management team transferred 378 animals from the Surabaya Zoo to 6 conservation organizations. However, several of the animals were in very poor health condition, and eventually died. Autopsies performed on the animals found plastic and wood had been ingested by the animals.

On 28 January 2014, the Surabaya authority announced the Surabaya Zoo housed a collection of 3,459 animals from 197 species, but that 81 of the animals were either sick, disabled or old.

The Bible tells us that every human has sinned and fallen short of the glory of God which is  is a heart-penetrating truth. He has provided a way to cleanse us of our sins since we can never be “good enough” to cleanse ourselves. That avenue to God’s grace, mercy and forgiveness (the cleansing of our sins) is through His only begotten Son, Jesus Christ of Nazareth Who is equally God.

 Not one of us are guaranteed a “tomorrow”. Has your time run out? Will you continue to ignore the promptings of God the Holy Spirit or have you awakened to the essential need for God, risking eternal damnation?

​​God the Holy Father, God the Holy Son and God the Holy Spirit are One God, the true, living, uncreated God Who is ever-present, all knowing, all powerful and all loving. He desires that every single person be forgiven, saved and to live eternally with Him. He is our only real protection and His love for you is unchanging. Accept Jesus Christ as your Savior, the true Messiah, today.

 You can’t take your salvation for a test drive. You’re all-in or not.

 Admit to Him that you are a sinner in need of forgiveness, that you are truly sorry for your sins.  Acknowledge that He died for your sins, rose from the dead and lives forevermore. Invite Him into your life and to help you to turn from sin. Rejoice! You just became a Christian! Now trust in Him and get to know Him through the Bible which tells us everything we need to know and through prayer/talking to Him. He eagerly desires relationship with you.
