Event Details

 The Python Patrol responder training is for those who are willing to safely catch and properly remove invasive snakes.


All attendees are required to take the free online REDDy training (introduced Reptile Early Detection and Documentation) and to print out the certificate and bring it to the Python Patrol training.  REDDy is an online course that takes up to 40 minutes and is a great overview of identification and reporting of invasive reptile sightings.  It also has handouts, including datasheets and ID tools, that are helpful in the field.  It’s at: http://ufwildlife.ifas.ufl.edu/reddy.shtml .



The class will start indoors with a presentation about the current need for and status of Python Patrol, how to identify invasive reptiles and report sightings, and how to get on the Python Patrol referral list.  Then we'll head outdoors for a demonstration and practice catching large, invasive snakes outdoors.  We recommend you wear long pants and long-sleeved shirts, closed-toe shoes and bring a change of clothes in case yours get dirty during the catching practice.



Everyone who attends should be willing to catch snakes and will have to fill out a form to get a Conditional Species permit from FWC to possess and transport those snakes, which I can send in to FWC to get processed. 



If you have any questions, contact me at cmillett@tnc.org.  Looking forward to it!
