"Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach a man how to fish, and you feed him for a lifetime."
Reptile and Amphibian Management Workshop (RAM) 2019 was a collaborative training event organized by IHF, Cikananga Wildlife Center, Chester Zoo, and Indonesian Forestry Department (BKSDA). The workshop, held in Cikananga on 30th July - 2nd August 2019, which aims to provide training and resources on reptile and amphibian management for both government officers and NGOs, who are involved with rescuing wildlife from conflict as well as illegal trade.
Since 2019, we have worked with both North Jakarta and Bogor Fire Departments to remove and translocate conflict snakes in these areas. We have also conducted several training sessions for the firefighters, so that they can safely deal with these potentially dangerous animals, while also paying attention to animal welfare. Part of this project was supported by Save the Snakes.
