Other Projects:

Snake-Bite Mitigation

I have been actively involved in reducing the snake-human conflicts. I will often remove snake from a potentially dangerous situation wherein people or snake can get hurt. I will collect data on the snake and I am creating a database to identify regions with high snake conflicts.

I also conduct workshops with indigenous people for creating awareness on snake conservation and snake bite mitigation.
