My activities while at the Veterinary Faculty at Syiah Kuala University, consist of taking a wide range of subjects ranging from matters related to Embryology, Anatomy, Zoology, Animal Physiology, Biostatistics, Biochemistry and General Courses. I am currently not following CCA curricula because I am still trying to keep up with scheduled lectures and courses at the moment.
The Orangutan Caring Scholarship is the way for me to reach my goal to be a veterinarian. Through this program, i can lighten my parent’s burden in financing my courses, so that they can still pay for my brother’s and sister’s schooling without thinking of my tuition fees, now being helped by this scholarship. I am grateful for the opportunity to receive the Orangutan Caring Scholarship supported by the Animal Health Foundation.
My project is to show the negative attitude the public in Indonesia has which negatively affects the Orangutans. I intend to write about the stupid behavior of man towards a rare animal as well as the resultant offensive behavior some orangutans exhibit in the Zoo as a result of the human behavior. Due to their confinement in zoos, some orangutans eat their own feces and show other neurotic behaviors. Zoo visitors give them cigarettes that they smoke as humans do. I hope my work will help change human behaviors, which are negatively affecting the Orangutans.
