Advocates for Snake Preservation

Advocates for Snake Preservation (ASP) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to changing how people view and treat snakes. ASP officially launched on Endangered Species Day, May 16th.

Why Snakes?

Snakes are threatened by many of the same issues that affect all wildlife, including habitat loss, climate change, unsustainable trade, and disease. But negative attitudes toward snakes may be the biggest barrier to their conservation because it often impedes efforts to address other threats.

ASP uses science, education, and advocacy to promote compassionate conservation and coexistence with snakes. ASP conducts natural history and behavior research on snakes following the guiding principles of compassionate conservation.

Through their blog, social media, presentations, and publications they dispel myths and misinformation about snakes. ASP identifies threats to snakes, and provides resources on how everyone can address those threats.

ASP is working toward a world where snakes are respected and appreciated instead of feared and hated.
