Forum > Snakes > Indian Snakes

Extended Monsoon time is on in many parts of India.  Snakes are found everywhere, whether it is flooded Kerala, waterlogged Gurgaon or our many Green villages. Some avoid them, some kill them yet few think they need to be understood and protected as a species which is essential to keep the web of life intact.  Snakes have territories and there is an environmentally positive reason why they are in your area.  

I would like all IWC members to watch a video we made recently on the topic of Indian Snakes.

Shaleen Attre is a co-founder of indiansnakes.org.  This website has a  comprehensive database of Indian snakes.  The site also gives tips on how to avoid snake bites, who to contact if you find a snake near your home and also where to get to a medical facility nearby with anti venom in case you are bitten by a snake.  

In her talk Shaleen demolishes many myths about snakes and says it is necessary to spread awareness and start talking about snakes if we want these reptiles to claim their place as protected wildlife of India.
