Snake Awareness ‘Walk and Talk’

Two weeks ago, Luke Kemp and I hosted a reptile awareness ‘talk and walk’ just outside of Grahamstown and we are happy to announce that it was very well received by the larger Grahamstown community, with just over 30 people attending the event.

At the end of the walk we did a quick show-and-tell with snakes that we had at the time and then we promptly released them back into the wild. Overall it was an awesome day that I hope to replicate in the not too distant future.
