Wayanad - Gurukula Botanical Sanctuary

Friday, June 1, 2018




When it comes to snakes, Romulus Whitaker is the last word for the passion and commitment he brings to his life's mission. At the Express Adda in Delhi he responded to all the questions, fears and reservations the common man has when it comes to facing snakes.

He emphasized on the role of parents and teachers in shaping a child's attitude toward snakes.  So this was a conversation with an adult audience, which included many nature lovers and a section of the general public.


 Quote "Especially in a country where we have 50,000 people dying of snake bites every year and many more getting permanently injured by snakes; it’s avoidable. But getting these messages out there, especially to rural India, is not easy. We are a country steeped in misbeliefs, so it gets a little awkward to say that what your grandfather told you is a lie. One has to do it in a much more diplomatic way and get it across to people that snakes are not after us. Snakes are, in fact, very frightened of us."  Romulus Whitaker

Events organized by IWC members

At http://Indianwildlifeclub.com we have opened an interactive forum for members to write in about issues they feel strongly about.  We have more than 50 categories under which you can write.

Your post can be formatted with our text editor and you can include website links too.

We also have a category called "Events".  Many IWC members are actively involved in ground level programs in their respective areas.  Many organize bird watching lessons,  herpetology classes, eco-treks,  photo exhibitions etc.  IWC forum encourages you to write about these local events.

To upload photographs in the article, you need to first publish them elsewhere, say in a blog, and then copy/paste the picture into the article.

I have organized two events recently, a bonsai appreciation class on 7th April, 2018 and a workshop on waste management and home composting on 29th April, 2018

Here are some photos of the events
