Organo et School along with Friends of Snakes Society organized a workshop on creating awareness about snakes on Saturday the 19 February 2022. This program was intended to bring awareness and acceptance of living in a biodiverse environment, in harmony with other creatures. These creatures may be snakes, who are reptiles of the wild. But due to over urbanization and erosion of green biodiverse habitats for humane establishments, these reptiles are rendered homeless and displaced from their natural habitat.
The purpose of this workshop was to raise awareness on:
• Snakes and human habitats
• Sighting a snake and handling it safely
• Venomous and non-venomous snakes and how to distinguish between the two
• First response and aid in case of a snake bite
• Facts from myths about snakes, well prevalent in Indian society
The Friends of Snakes Society helped participants learn all the above and much more. They had brought 10 rescued live snakes to show people and help them identify or sight snakes in real life situations. The children got excited to see so many live snakes being held with bare hands. A lot of them asked questions pertaining to their fears and related issues. All these were handled very well by the representatives, and participants got satisfactory responses.
They informed that snakes when sighted in human establishments are rescued with care by Friends of Snakes Society and, with the help of Wildlife Ministry of Telangana, taken into the forests and released there. This is done to ensure minimum harm to these estranged reptiles, who are being deprived of their natural habitat.
Ms. Meena, Director OES thanked the FOSS representatives and presented them Certificates of Appreciation at the end of this 1-hour program. A delicious lunch awaited the participants at the God’s Own Office café after the workshop.
