Why Snakes?

Snakes are threatened by many of the same issues that affect all wildlife, including habitat loss, climate change, and disease. But negative attitudes toward snakes may be the biggest barrier to their conservation because it often impedes efforts to address other threats (read more).

Our Mission

To use science, education, and advocacy to promote compassionate conservation and coexistence with snakes.

Our Vision

A world where snakes are respected and appreciated instead of feared and hated.

Our Work

We conduct research on snakes following the guiding principles of compassionate conservation.

We dispel myths and misinformation about snakes through our blog, presentations, and publications.

We identify threats to snakes, and provide resources on how WE can address those threats.
