Conservation Through Education
At the Halton EcoFest Sciensational Sssnakes will provide display tanks and interpretive signagefor 3 tables. Interpretive display boards will be set up in conjunction with display tanks. Each display tank is clearly labeled and there are also interpretive signs to accompany each type of animal on display. There is always a minimum of one interpreter staffing the display; it is never left unsupervised.
Our displays feature live animals that are safe, friendly and easy to handle.
Many of them are native Ontario species, some of which are now endangered in the wild, and rarely seen.
