SEMINAR DATE: Saturday 10th November 2012
Bio-Ken Snake Farm will be hosting the Eighth International Snake-bite Seminar on Saturday 10th November 2012 at Turtle Bay Beach Club in Watamu, Kenya.
The aims of this seminar are:
1. To update information on venomous snakes and snake-bite in Africa.
2. To review development of new antivenoms for Africa.
3. To discuss captive care and husbandry of snakes and other reptiles.
Although these topics are particularly relevant to medical practitioners please note that you do not have to be in the medical profession to attend this seminar. We encourage anyone who is interested in, or regularly comes in to contact with, snakes to attend. First aid treatment of a snakebite case is usually undertaken before a doctor is on the scene so this knowledge is important to everyone.
Our speakers will include Professor David Warrell of the University of Oxford and a cast of other enthusiastic snake-bite doctors and herpetologists.
The lectures will begin at 9am (registration from 8am) and will go on all day with breaks for coffee, lunch and tea. There will be a casual get together in the bar at Hemingway’s Resort on Friday 9th of November at 7pm to familiarize. The registration fee is Ksh 2,000/= per person payable at registration on Saturday morning.
The following hotels are offering discounted rates for those attending the seminar so please make sure you mention that when making your reservation.
It would help the organising committee if you could please RSVP via the Contact Us form. Those who do reply will be given priority for the seminar. We look forward to seeing you there!
