Public Talk on the Beauty of Snakes:
Dear Friends of SBC
In case you have not received our previous email/invitation, we would
like to invite you to join us as we explore the wonders and beauty of
snakes on 10 August 2012, Friday at 3.00pm at the Sarawak Biodiversity
This time, we are pleased to have Hans Breuer who will take us on a
journey to get over the general repulsion towards snakes, and learn to
appreciate them (even if it is just from a distance!).
Breuer's 90 minutes presentation entitled "The Beauty of Snakes" will
consist of four parts.
In the first part of the presentation, Breuer will hold a general
discussion with the audience of what snakes mean to them and people in
general. Here, he will also address issues such as fear and prejudices
towards snakes, as well as why snakes are important to the
In the second part of the presentation, Breuer will engage the
audience on what to do if they meet a wild snake, with reference to
the various species found in Borneo.
Third, Breuer will present a brief overview of why snakes are “really
cool animals”. This part of the presentation will feature some
interesting facts about snakes.
The presentation will also feature a show and tell, where Breuer will
show photos of beautiful snakes, and allow the audience to get a feel
of snake skins (and perhaps even a live snake!)
So do make a date with us (and snakes) for Friday, 10 August 2012, at 3:00pm.
Bring friends, students, colleagues and family!
Please leave us your names and telephone numbers to register via this
