Children and Snakes – Teaching the next generation.

It has been a while since our last blog. This has been a very tough year for all of us in Kenya. Hopefully things will start to improve soon as we love our country, it’s people and it’s wildlife but we all came close to the abyss this year. Security has been fine and in fact very good in our area except for having to replace our laptop and camera, but we have all suffered from the drop in visitors to Bio-Ken.

Since January this year we have released staggering number of reptiles back into the wild and have been able to teach a lot of young people about the importance of conserving all wildlife including reptiles and especially snakes. Here are a few pictures of where we have been and what we have been up to.

Bio-Ken Snake Farm in Watamu, Kenya is actively involved in the saving of snakes. This is our first post and over the next few weeks we hope to introduce you to the active work we are doing in the field. Please check out our web site until then Below is a picture of an Egyptian Cobra Naja haje that was saved from being beaten to death two years ago.The photograph was taken a last year by Anton Childs of Bio-Ken and although the snake has a broken back and therefore will never be released as you can see she is looking great and has helped us address the subject of killing snakes unnecessarily with this excellent portrait.
