Fact is cuddlier than fiction!

At SnakeSense, we have a goal. We want to see Australia become a place where snakes are accepted and respected as a critical component of our unique ecosystems. We want snakes to live without the fear of “death-by-human”.

The key to achieving our goal is education. Raise your hand if you want to save snakes!

Everyone has different amounts of time and financial resources available to give: but don’t despair, there are several ways you can help us.

Become a Fan

If you’re overworked and underfunded (sounds familiar!), it will only take a moment to become a SnakeSense fan. Follow us on Facebook or Twitter, join our mailing list using the box on the right hand side of our website, and subscribe to our blog RSS feed … that’s it! By keeping yourself up-to-date with the world of snake conservation, you’re raising your hand for saving snakes – and that’s all it takes to make a difference.

Spread the Word

If you’re a keen conservationist with a little extra time to spare, become a fan as described above … and take the snake conservation message to the people: your people.

Don’t be afraid to make use of the information on this website to combat your neighbour’s anti-snake views or politely correct your father-in-law. Be loud, be proud, be a snake fan!
