South Korea's First Lady, Kim Jung-sook, believes that taking care of the Earth's ecosystem can help protect humanity with all living creatures coexisting in their natural habitats.
Taking part in the opening ceremony of a shelter for endangered animals located in Seocheon, Chungcheongnam-do Province on Tuesday, First Lady Kim pledged to do her best in turning a healthy Earth over to the next generation.
Local elementary school students helped decorate enclosures used for marmosets and fennec(fe-nik) foxes.
The shelter will be used to protect endangered animals which have been confiscated after being smuggled into the country or abandoned during illegal breeding.
It will also be used to teach the value of life and a coexistence between humans and wild animals.
