Snakes and urbanisation
Snakebite is a major public health issue all over the world, with an evergrowing frequency of human-snake conflict. This is exacerbated by urbanisation, as human settlements are established in areas that are already home to venomous snakes. But what can be done to mitigate the detrimental effects of human-snake conflict for people and snakes alike?
Herpetologist Dr. Matt Goode and PhD student Alexus Cazares will talk about their studies on the effects of urbanization on rattlesnakes in Arizona as well as on the conservation of the king cobra in South-east Asia.
You are cordially invited to join us for these interesting lectures and drinks with the speakers afterwards. There is no registration required, admittance is free of charge.
This event is hosted by Future for Nature Academy and Institute of Biology Leiden.
