Each photo is our memories related to the whole process of rescuing that individual such as healthcare, feeding, rehabilitating, and/or releasing. I hope that the audience will not only enjoy the beauty of endangered wildlife but also understand out efforts in wildlife protection. I also hope that each audience will support us so that we can save more endangered wildlife” – Said Mr. Nguyen Vu Khoi – WAR’s CEO who contribute most photos at the exhibition.
