Just came across a lovely concept which could equally apply to the human relationship with wildlife for our mutual sustenance, and it is explained like this:

What is a Kahu? In Hawaiian culture, you do not call yourself your pet’s “owner “. You are referred to as their “Kahu”. The word Kahu has a deep meaning and is defined as the sacred role of guardian, protector, steward or honored attendant. Essentially, someone entrusted with the safe keeping of something precious - something cherished. What a Kahu protects is not their property. What they protect is a part of their soul. We become better when we truly love an animal. We embrace the connection of all life when we embody what it means to be a Kahu. 💕
