Hi All,

In 2010, I highlighted a study that documented steep declines in a number of snake species. Despite disturbing similarities to the “Disappearing Amphibian Crisis”, the snake situation seems not to have generated widespread concern. In my own career as a herpetologist, opportunities to become involved in snake conservation were also limited. Although I was fortunate enough to work in programs designed to bolster the populations of several species, including Green Anacondas, Indigo and Hognose Snakes, most such efforts were short-lived. I was pleased to learn, therefore, that a partnership of several major conservation organizations has made the plight of the world’s snakes a priority for the year 2013…and help is being sought from interested snake enthusiasts, regardless of experience.

Although I'm not sure I can enjoy the same enthusiasm you share for snakes, it's nice to have you in the group.....

I also keep snakes and we should do all we can to save them. Without them we'd be overrun by mice and rats. I love my snakes!

Hognose snakes are super common in captivity though. Pretty neat snakes

Thanks very much for the welcome. I've worked with parrots and other birds for many years as well, mainly at the Bx Zoo but also in the field, and long ago, for an importer/quarantine facility. http://bit.ly/zSSAmd Best, Frank
