Teach your children and staff valuable LIFE SKILLS. Encounters with venomous creatures in Australia are a fact of life, can be of great concern to many and surprisingly very few people have any real education in how to manage such encounters.
This life skills program is myth busting, reassuring and confidence building in understanding how to live amongst our infamous venomous wildlife.
Education and personal empowerment – it is education and training – but we have some fun too.
Perfect for all ages, school camps, staff team building and those new to Australia.
Professional and knowledgeable “presenter”, herpetologist David Manning, is a DBCA Parks & Wildlife Service licensed and endorsed trainer of Snake Handling training courses for adults, part of occupational health and safety training.

Is it Safe?
We are DBCA Parks & Wildlife Service licensed and endorsed venomous snake catch and relocation trainers. We teach ‘grown ups’ how to catch snakes, but this workshop is NOT about catching snakes. It’s about awareness of dangerous wildlife and what to do in a serious situation. For example, say your child or their friend is bitten by a snake when down at the skate park or when camping.
What about Hygiene?
These creatures are surprisingly clean and all students and teachers are asked to wash hands after each session. We usually have soap free antiseptic hand wash available as well.
