Event Details

The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission will host a Python Patrol Training on September 19, 2014 at Gasparilla Island State Park.  Note- after registering, print out the ticket that is automatically generated and bring it to the workshop.  You will need to place the ticket on the dash of your car to show that you are at the training.  Do not pay the admittance fee at the front gate- drive into the park and follow the signs to the Amory Chapel where the training will be held.


The training will start indoors with a presentation about Burmese pythons in Florida, regulations for this species, how to identify and detect exotic reptiles and report sightings. The second half of the training will be outdoors, and participants will practice safe capture with live, wild caught snakes.  Participants must wear long pants and closed toe shoes for the hands-on portion of the training.
  
All participants are encouraged to take the free online REDDy training which is available at http://ufwildlife.ifas.ufl.edu/reddy.shtml.
 
Participants that expect to capture and transport live Burmese pythons can fill out a permit application at the training.  The REDDy certficiate is a required part of the permit application; participants that want to get a permit and who bring their REDDy certificate to the training can turn in paperwork to the instructor.  Those that do not bring their REDDy certificate must take their permit application with them and submit it, along with the REDDy certificate, to FWC at a later time.
