Snake Handlers and ID Course Cape Town

Snake ID & Handlers Course
9 May 2015

Snakes are everywhere.  Some are venomous and some are not.

It is our responsibility as advocates of nature to assist in maintaining a balance of our beautiful eco system for the benefit of all. 

The West Coast Community needs people like you to help them, and by doing so to help the snakes who are often misidentified and killed unnecessarily, but if we can keep our ecosystem going, we will help towards a healthy environment for the future of all.

Please join us in the very exciting Snake Identification & Handling course, which is FGASA endorsed and certification to be given afterwards.
