Conservation: Save the Snakes

SAVE

Save the Snakes is an organization I recently became involved with, as a member of the advisory board. I am really excited to help further their mission to help humans and snakes coexist in a sustainable way.

“Save The Snakes works to reduce negative interactions between humans and snakes by implementing mitigation strategies which will lead to peaceful coexistence.

We educate communities about how to live in harmony with snakes, why snakes are important for ecosystems and how to treat snakebite.

We protect snake habitat, conduct research that supports snake conservation efforts and train citizens to become “para-ecologists”, who can solve human-snake conflict and assist in snake conservation efforts.

We accomplish our work by establishing trust with rural communities, providing solutions that decrease human-snake conflicts and utilizing indigenous local knowledge of wildlife.

While our conservation efforts are currently focused in India, we work globally to promote our mission.”
