    Hi Diana Gamazova, this is a mentor, Sang Su Lee.

    I am so happy to see that a benevolent organization such as BOSF exists to take care of the wild animals. First, I did not agree with the idea that people should take responsibilities to save wild animals. However, considering that the reason why many wild animals suffer and extinct, I changed my opinion. If our actions bother and kill wild animals, then we have to take responsibilities for our actions!

    Thank you for introducing such an organization.

    Green cheers~
