Saving Snakes, Protecting People

Snakes are some of the most vilified creatures on earth, responsible for 900 deaths a year in Kenya. But they play a vital role in the rural environment by controlling the rodent population. Kenyan scientists say people and snakes can be better protected and that poisonous snakes are the only source of life saving anti-venom. Travel to Baringo County which has the highest rate of snake fatalities in Kenya. Meet the snake scientists of Bio Ken Snake Farm in Watamu, who collect snake venom and respond to the public’s emergency calls to remove snakes from their property.
