Drop your books for Pemerihan kids!

Do you have a lot of children books that you don’t use anymore?? or do you have books that have big impact in your life and you already finished reading it and maybe those books could inspire others?  or do you just simply want to do good?

February last year, I got the chance to help my supervisor (you can see her blog her here: to do an education work about Bird and Bat ecosystem service in Bengkunat, West Lampung.   Before we do the awareness work, two of my friends have done their research there before, but they needed someone to do the awareness.   As we know, Bird and Bat are known for their role for pollinating plants and to helping reduce the pest.  Continue reading Lampung Fun Project
