Many people do not understand the need to conserve and protect our native reptiles. These animals are essential to our environment; even venomous reptiles such as diamondback rattlesnakes and copperheads play a crucial part in our ecosystem. Unfortunately, some of these animals end up in the back yards of residential neighborhoods because of habitat destruction. While many people see them as a nuisance or a pest, these animals may not have anywhere else to turn. We would like to do our part in providing information to these folks about alternative ways to remove these animals safely and humanely from their properties and to be relocated to a safer environment.
