Partners in Amphibian and Reptile Conservation (PARC) is celebrating 2013 as the Year of the Snake! This effort aims to raise awareness about the global status of snakes and the threats and human perceptions that contribute to their decline. As the Year of the Snake unfolds, it is the goal of PARC to educate the public about the importance of these species, their importance to our ecosystems, the value of snakes to humans, and the beauty and mystique of these animals and the places they inhabit.
