The Houston Zoo Supports Snake Conservation

Save The Snakes partners with global leaders in snake conservation, research and education to protect snake populations and reduce human-snake conflict. Recently Save The Snakes’ Partner Eastern Ghats Wildlife Society has received support from the Houston Zoo to continue our king cobra conservation efforts and to reduce human-snake conflict in Southern India.

“With the support of the Houston Zoo and you, the Eastern Ghats Wildlife Society will be able to give school presentations, awareness talks at universities in towns and community centers in rural areas with human-snake conflict. Through this work, communities will learn how to identify venomous vs. non-venomous snakes, as well as learn valuable snake bite and first aid skills.”

This support from the Houston Zoo will greatly expand our programs on the ground in the Eastern Ghats of India. Read more about this exciting partnership here.
