Education & Outreach
Here at The Rattlesnake Conservancy, we believe that education and outreach are the foundation to establishing successful conservation programs. Every year, our education team attends events across the U.S. to help people connect with snakes and understand their important to our ecosystems. On average, our team reaches close to 50,000 people annually at several events, including the Claxton Rattlesnake Festival, Pasco County Rattlesnake Festival, the Florida Fire Festival, Lubee Bat Festival, Endangered Species Day and Party for the Planet at Santa Fe College Teaching Zoo, and many more!
Through these outreach and education programs, our team works to dispel myths, teach people about the importance of rattlesnakes to our ecosystems, the potential for venom research to help save human lives, and help reduce conflict with wildlife.
Interested in having our Education Team do a presentation at your event, fundraiser, or school? Reach out today! Our programs involve fun and educational activities for kids and adults, live snakes and other reptiles, and presentations by our knowledgeable staff.
We also have staff available to speak to environmental groups, local government agencies, and other groups that are interested in learning more about what we do or about native snakes in their area!
