  1. I have to commend you on the contents of your seminar and how you presented the information. I have been to the types of courses before, but I found your content refreshingly different. It was easy to understand. I particularly agree with your focus upon understanding nature and not being afraid or believing misinformation. This content should be required understanding for everyone.

    Keep up the great work!


    1. Thank you for your comments! Preventing or responding to a snakebite is not as difficult or complicated as most people imagine. The biggest challenge is changing our values and beliefs towards these animals. I hope you enjoy the online resources!

  2. So I thought I knew what to do in case of a snakebite, however, you have shown me a different and refreshing approach. I appreciated how you explained why certain techniques do not work and why others do. No one has managed to explain this to me before. Being in the wildlife industry I have listened to so called experts on this subject. None come close to how you presented and the way you conveyed your ideas - you are a true professional. Thank.You!
