Advocates for Snake Preservation
/

  Why do snakes tend to send a shiver up our spines? The Book of Genesis did no favors to the serpent's reputation, and humans tend be genetically wired to be fearful of these creatures. Melissa Amarello, co-founder and director of education of the Advocates for Snake Preservation (ASP) joins us to explain why snakes and their habitats should be protected, and why Rattlesnake Roundups are one of the worst ways to educated the public about rattlers. http://www.snakes.ngo/
