UNAIR NEWS – Humans and animals should live in harmony and support each others. So it is only appropriate if humans with reasoning ability respect and never harm animals.
But some people who have direct contact with animals do not mind the animal welfare, especially farm and pet animals. As of today, there are still many cases of painful and improper animal butchery. Also animal neglect and torture which cause death.
With these as background, a seminar and a talk show “Pemeliharaan Hewan Ternak dan Hewan Kesayangan Berdasarkan Animal Welfare dalam Perspektif Publik”, was held by Veterinary Medicine program PDD UNAIR Banyuwangi, in Pondok Wina Banyuwangi restaurant, on Saturday, May 21.
In the event, speakers who are national or international experts in the field were invited. They were dr. Riska Yulinta Viandini, MMR, avgrooming expert with international certificate, and Prof. Dr. Bambang Sektiari Lukiswanto, drh., DEA., FKH UNAIR professor who is also the Head of UNAIR Quality Assurance Board.
“We hope this event will improve knowledge on animal welfare, especially for the participants and also for Banyuwangi community in general,” said Welly, the head of the committee.
The seminar and talkshow held in a restaurant did not only serve scientific materials, but also with practical grooming training and animal exhibition from many animal lovers’ communities in Banyuwangi. (*)
