He spoke incessantly at first, but he said goodbye to me and than hung up because I said 'Thank you!' in the midst of my talking. That's astonished me! We manufacture 10 question sheets and request visitors to fill in. We thank them for helping positively and passionately and talking about Niou-bobo with us. We also contact other team, organized for the purpose of natural ecology, to gather more data of Niou-bobo Ecological Butterfly Gardens.
