Letter of intention

My name is Panaitescu Alin, and, in the present, I
study as a student in the 4th year at the Faculty of
Biology, of the University in Bucharest, section
Animal Biology.I have been an active member of
Aquaterra for four years( an ecological society which
develops its work in the sphere of activies
coordinated by the University Bucharest, and this year
I decided to make a study in my diploma on
Romanichthys valsanicola.I am also implied in the Life
project, directed by the Academician Petru Banarescu
who is interested in saving and protecting
Romanichthys valsanicola.
I made this choice because I was born and spent my
childhood in Curtea de Arges, nearby a river called
Valsan,and this fish interested me since that early
age.I would like very much to found an ecological
society under the name of “Romanichthys valsanicola”,
which function in my native village.I would be really
concerned with the protection of this “living fossil”,
by opening a club for children and for pupils who
really love nature.The ecological society which I
am going to set bases of will undoubtedly recive the
practical support of the Biology prof. from Curtea de
Arges, and, of course, with the help of the Faculty of
Biology in Bucarest.
Bat, as I am at the beginning of this project, any
support coming from your part would represent one more
chance in successfully realising this project.
