Participants speak

"I have attended a lot of workshops on numerous nature & wildlife matter and would rate this as one of the best I have been to. Your workshop really helped expand my knowledge on snakes. Definitely a workshop for anyone who works with reptiles, no matter how long they have worked with them. Very informative and I came away with knowledge to help me rescue snakes with risk free techniques. Addition to your presence, inclusion of a session with Ganesh was very useful.Can't forget the Irula - Kali"
