The Friends of Snakes Society was founded in 1995 by Late Shri. Rajkumar Kanuri. The organization has been involved in snake conservation since its inception.
The organization has more than 180 volunteers who dedicate their valuable time to help the organization realize its goals in conservation. There are about twenty rescuers who dedicate their time full time to rescue snakes that wander near human inhabitation. Apart from rescues, the organization emphasis on the power of knowledge and awareness to the common man. A saying by Chief Dan George goes
If you talk to animals, they will talk with you and you will know each other. If you do not talk to them, you will not know them and what you do not know, you will fear. What one fears one destroys!
On the same lines, if you do not have enough knowledge about snakes and their importance, you will end up killing them. Hence, the Friends of Snakes Society has been conducting awareness programmes in schools, colleges and other institutions for almost two decades and continue to do so at every oppurtunity.
