the schools in the region.
The participants were congratulated by favorite and
well-known artists: Milena and Yoanna, “Ilkova theater”

“Today the owners, who are walking their pets in the
park, have a chance to see the world through the eyes
of our Eco-patrols. Because they have something to teach
them: to cherish the nature and respect the animals!”
– these were the opening words of AFA’s chairperson Aksinia
Bosneva which marked the start of the first eco-action
for the competitions of the Nominations.
Reporters from the National Bulgarian Television headed
by Karina Karaniotova interviewed the Eco-patrols.
AFA was pleasantly surprised by the action’s results:
more than 30 dog owners were inquired. They also received
the leaf-let “AlVi for eco-city”, reminding them the rules
for a dog’s good care-giving. All the dog owners were
carrying plastic bags so the park will stay clean after

and “Krasno selo” region in Sofia.
Stefana Drianovska, AFA’s ambassador abroad, will familiarize
the participants with the wonderful greetings that were
sent to them by various animal friends around the world.
The first greeting is by
Merritt Clifton, the American editor of Animal People:
“As participants in the "Biggest Little Friend
of Animals" educational activities, all of you are
helping to do the work that I looked for ways to do at
your age. Each of you have found your own useful ways
to contribute to reducing what my now deceased animal
advocate friend Henry Spira called "the universe
What you may not realize is that you are not only
reducing animal suffering in your own place and time,
but also contributing to the future of humanity. The ethic
of kindness and compassion that you help to advance today
will help to establish a kinder, more compassionate world
for your children, and their children, and perhaps eventually
for worlds far beyond our imagination.
Merritt Clifton, editor”
AFA WISHES LUCK TO THE BIGGEST LITTLE FRIEND OF ANIMALS.
