VENOMOUS REPTILE MANAGEMENT
SAFE CAMPUS PROGRAMME FOR Factories, Ports, Apartment Complexes, School and College Campuses
Are you worried about snakes in your campus? Do you see snakes being killed in your office or community?
An Initiative to increase awareness on reptiles and reduce human-animal conflict in urban and semi-urban areas with snakes without chemical intervention. A pioneering initiative by Kalinga Centre for Rainforest Ecology (KCRE). This program is a practical implementation of lessons learned from over two decades of experience in snake rescues and human-animal conflicts with snakes.
PS: Please note we do not operate as pest controllers. We believe people can and need to learn to co-exist with urban wildlife. Our aim is to create awareness and show the way to appreciate life around them
About VRM Safe Campus Program

We will conduct regular follow-ups through maintenance checks, drills and close interactions with residential communities to help foster a responsible attitude towards our environment and urban wildlife. Guided and monitored by experts at all stages, this program is a collective effort of the scientific team backing it and the residential community.
