Bali Reptile Rescue
Men with snakes wander the streets of Bali, out to educate men women and children about snakes and reptiles and what to do if they encounter one.
They are from Bali Reptile Rescue, a voluntary organisation, relying on donations to rescue, rehabilitate, relocate and educate people about the potential dangers of snakes if they are harassed.
The group also organises small tour groups to see Indonesia's flora and fauna in its natural habitat, far away from tourist areas, something no other tour operator does.
Relying on donations to operate, they say it costs around $2 to catch and relocate a snake, but with many snakes needing either rescuing or relocating, costs can quickly add up.
Donations are welcomed via Paypal at email@example.com
If you are in Bali and have a concern about a snake in your area Bali Reptile Rescue can be contacted 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Professional Snake Handlers will come and remove the snake for free. Their number is 0821 4638 0270.
