KwaZulu-Natal Amphibian & Reptile Conservation was started up by Nick Evans in 2015, as a chapter of The Lawrence Anthony Earth Organization. It is run by Nick, his fiancee’ Joelle, and mother- Elaine.
The aim of the programme is to create an awareness and understanding about these amazing animals that are so feared and misunderstood. We hope to encourage people to appreciate and respect these animals, rather than hate them.
We do this in various ways, such as:
- Rescuing snakes out of people’s properties
- Snake awareness & identification talks, for all kinds of groups
- Frogging evenings!
- Educational write-ups about snakes and frogs, on social media and in newspapers
- And more!
We’re driven by enthusiasm and passion, which will hopefully rub off on others!
