Exercise 8 Solution

Write a letter to your friend within 100 words narrating your experience of visiting a Wild Life Sanctuary.


Dear Subhas

I hope you’re well. I wanted to share my incredible experience visiting a Wildlife Sanctuary recently. It was nothing short of awe-inspiring. As soon as I entered, I was greeted by the lush greenery and the vibrant calls of various birds. I saw majestic elephants, graceful deer, and even a few elusive leopards from a safe distance. The highlight was witnessing a tiger in its natural habitat, a moment I’ll never forget.

The dedication of the sanctuary staff to preserving these animals and their habitats left a lasting impression on me. It’s a must-visit for any nature enthusiast. Can’t wait to hear your stories when we catch up!

Take care,
