WEBINAR SERIES ON THE BASIC TAXONOMY OF

SNAKES OF INDIA

"Have you ever studied a snake's face? - how optimistic they look. They have an eternal smile."

- Tasha Tudor

 

Description:

Snakes are among nature’s most misunderstood yet weirdly attractive creations. There is a long tail of incorrect beliefs and misconceptions about these creatures that have become a threat to their survival. Societal beliefs with layers of half-observed incidents have played a significant role in spreading misinformation about snakes, which has resulted in a threat to their lives over time, also becoming a threat to humans who interact with them during snakebites or living in such snakebite prone regions.

Snakes, which have limbless bodies, scaly skin, lidless eyes, and a forked tongue, are an important part of the ecosystem and our culture.  They have no legs, no puppy faces, and no fluffy fur, yet they are somehow attractive to many people, including those who are scared of them.

The Nature's Eye has created a webinar series on the Basic Taxonomy of Snakes that will be handled by Mr Vivek Sharma for all the kids, wildlife enthusiasts, prospective environmentalists, and educators out there.
