Grant SmithCape Snake Conservation
Cape Snake Conservation (CSC) is Cape Town’s first and only official full time snake services provider. Driven by passion, their quest is to conserve the Mother City’s misunderstood serpents and to empower all Capetonians that live alongside them. Their educational approach takes the form of courses such as snake identification and snake handling courses, live demonstrations at functions, schools or birthday parties, and by providing free snake information on http://www.capesnakeconservation.com. Cape Snake Conservation also recognises the importance of good science and is making use of data from snake removal call outs to try and better understand the distribution and population dynamics of Cape Town’s snakes. Snake removal is at the heart of the services that CSC provides. Their dedicated snake catchers are available 24/7 and also provide property consultations on request. Most recently, CSC has opened a new online store http://www.snakeshop.co.za. It currently stocks mostly snakeproof gear like snake gaiters but plans to expand their range to include all things snake!
