    Hello Diana Gamazova, this is mentor Taehyun!

    Thank you for your article on the Borneo Orangutan Survival Foundation for protecting orangutans! Orangutans, like chimpanzees, are very popular in the media, so I think they're friendly to people, but for some reason they're endangered, but I'm glad there's an organization that can protect them. It's something that everyone in the world should do, and I'm hopeful that there are people who are committed to it. I want to thank them!

    Thank you for the report!
