Awareness Program on Snakes

A snake awareness workshop was held at the Bee Museum on the 8th of September under the banner of the Nilgiri Wildlife & Environment Association (NWEA). Twenty-five people including students from the Blue Mountain School took part in this educative program aimed at creating awareness about snakes and the erroneous perceptions associated with them. The workshop started off with the screening of a wildlife documentary ‘A million snakebites’. This was followed by a presentation by Mr Sadiq Ali of the NWEA on the different venomous and non-venomous snakes of India following which the participants got a chance to actually handle some of the rescued snakes non-venomous of course. The session ended with a live demonstration of a snake rescue operation!!
