5:30 pm - 7:00 pm
Nicolette Cagle, Senior Lecturer in the Nicholas School of the Environment

Snake populations are declining precipitously around the globe, but calls for their conservation are muted by fear and prejudice. "Saving Snakes" offers a new approach to understanding snakes and preserving their populations-an approach built on respect. Hear from author Nicolette Cagle, who has traveled the world in search of snakes and spent decades conducting natural science research on the patterns of snakes in regions where urban development encroaches upon the natural world. Her book offers a firsthand account of the strange and secretive lives of snakes, and it reveals their devastating losses. A book signing will follow this talk in the Doris Duke Center. Books will be available for sale. Admission is free, but registration is required. Parking fees apply. (Photo by Nicolette Cagle.)
