This World Snake Day, we are taking action to appreciate and support our dedicated Conservation Partners in India and Nepal. They provide an invaluable service to their community, by rescuing and relocating snakes that have been found near or even inside people’s homes. Sometimes they rescue as many as ten snakes per week! Snake rescuers educate and empower community members about safe snake rescue and relocation, but they also teach snakebite first aid, snake ecology and conservation. These Snake Rescue Teams are an essential part of a network of individuals who can immediately fulfill Save The Snakes’ mission to protect threatened snake populations and mitigate human-snake conflict in South India and Nepal. Their tireless efforts are truly remarkable and inspiring.
In honor of World Snake Day and to increase the capacity of their work, we are gathering donated items for their snake rescue efforts. We are only accepting items until July 21st, 2018. Can you help us get the needed items?
