Keynote Speaker for WESSA Grahamstown AGM

On the 19th of April, I was the keynote speaker for the Wildlife and Environmental Society of South Africa (WESSA) Grahamstown AGM, that took place in Eden Grove lecture theatre, at Rhodes University. In the first part of my talk, I discussed the reptiles that could be found in and around Grahamstown, and how to identify them. I also talked about snakebite treatment, snake myths, and what to do if you encounter a venomous snake.

In the second part of my talk, I discussed my genetics research, my side project documenting snake callouts and my community engagement in and around Grahamstown. I thoroughly enjoyed the talk and the audience I presented it to. Thank you to WESSA for inviting me and keep up the good work, you guys are doing great work in Grahamstown.
