  1. Salam kenal dari Merauke…

    Perkenalkan saya salah seorang dosen junior prodi peternakan di Universitas Negeri Musamus Merauke, sangat-sangat menyukai web anda yang sederhana tapi sangat berbobot. Informasi dari hasil penulisan anda sangat membantu saya untuk lebih banyak mengetahui keragaman satwa yang ada di Papua.

    Sementara ini saya sedang menimba ilmu di pascasarjana IPB. Saya harap anda sebagai dosen senior dan berpengalaman di bidang peternakan di Papua, dapat membantu saya, apabila saya membutuhkan informasi seputar dunia peternakan di Papua khususnya.

    Saya harap dikemudian hari kita dapat bekerja sama, semoga dunia satwa dan peternakan di Papua dapat lestari dan berkembang.

    Terima Kasih

    Salam hangat

    Heny Vensye Saiya
