Alexander Feldman, the founder of the Ecopark: «Now, when the enemy continues to shell our cities and kill our people, we are all 24/7 solving pressing issues. But this does not mean that we do not need to think about what will happen tomorrow. The war will definitely end with our victory, the Ecopark will definitely be revived. And there will definitely be a monument to people who died saving animals. Work on it has already begun.
War is the worst thing that can happen, but it also gives us a lot of examples of real heroism and self-sacrifice at the front and in the outbacks, which we simply have no right to forget and will never forget. Among these heroes are the employees and volunteers of our Ecopark, who have been doing everything possible and impossible to save animals since the first days of the war. Risking their own lives, under constant shelling, they give thousands of innocent living beings a chance to live. These are real heroes, people with big hearts and beautiful pure souls.
Since the beginning of the war, six people have given their lives saving animals. Eternal memory to them and our immense gratitude. We will always remember them. Heroes don’t die, they stay with us forever. And the monument to them is a tribute of deep respect to their self-sacrifice and humanism.»
