Bahamian Reptiles: Land & Sea
July 1st @ 11 AM EST to 12:30 PM EDT
The fourth webinar session is being presented under the theme “Bahamian Reptiles: Land and Sea” and will focus on the conservation status, current research, and collective threats to various Bahamian reptiles, both terrestrial and marine.
The Bahamas is home to many species of reptile. Snakes, lizards, and turtles all reside throughout the country. These animals face several threats, be it habitat destruction, competition with invasive species, disease, or even persecution from human beings. However, these same reptiles are some of our most valuable resources, be it from the tourism aspect or human health aspects.
This session serves as an opportunity to show people that we should not take our reptiles for granted and instead, do what we can to protect them.
