Hello, my name is Angga Saputra, and I’m student of the Forest Conservation and Ecotourism of Faculty of Forestry of Bogor Agricultural University. I am interested to learn about policy of conservation, maintenance of biodiversity, and environmental issues. I have been involved in an internship with FKKM NGO’s where I learned about policy of Community Forestry and also conflict between the national park and peoples around it. I’m a friendly person, good listener, hard-worker, dedicated learner, and humorous. My dream is to collaborate with many people around the world and making cooperate to save our forests and biodiversity.
