Do you live in or ever visit Cape Town?

Do snakes interest or worry you?

Do you like to spend time outdoors?

Have you ever wondered how often snakes are encountered or people are bitten by them?

If you have answered positively to any of these questions Grant Smith of Cape Snake Conservation would like you to complete a survey, which will only take you a few minutes. The survey applies to all Capetonians.

Click here for the survey: http://goo.gl/gJH6KC. The cut-off date for survey submissions is on the 1 November 2013
