Welcome. We are indeed English-speaking here though with some I question it.
You've posted in the Environmental section of the forum. There's one for introductions but this being your first time, you'll probably be granted a pass.
We have another section for Animal Concerns, one open to anything, and finally, one for posting questions/concerns to the board moderators. It's called Feedback for Envirolink.
I'm pretty old here, a right leaning libertarian curmudgeon who's been combing the boards since the...uh...early 90's I think. There's only one regular that's been around longer. I won't mention any names but you will meet him. I guarantee it.
