BRAZILIAN SNAKES Project, constitute a photographic and information database, that will be used for the immediate identification of snakes of Brazilian fauna. As well as providing information on the initial steps of accidents involving these animals. Also be used as an important reference source of local support.
Cover the areas of public health: medical, veterinary, biological, ecological and educational. The project will have a great social benefit.

ApoioCultural's insight:

Brazilian Snakes Project, (http://www.brazilian-snakes.com/) so important for the scientific and established communities in Brazil, can only be completed with the financial support of crowdfundig. The collective funding became essential for projects of this order to be made possible in the country.

 

The project was initiated in late 2007 by Fernando Bergamaschi de Souza (see other projects) and in May 2008 already received several support and recognition letters by Government and Universities in Brazil.
In these years Brazilian Snakes Project has provided services in counseling, training and identification of animals for countless people and businesses around the country.

As Fernando Bergamaschi, Project coordinator; We arrived at the critical point where, without financial assistance, we can not complete this project, so necessary to the population and the professional environment.

Importance of identifying snakes:
Nowadays there is a new scaring deadline, and with growing numbers: In the next 24 hours, 380 persons in Brazil will be bitten by a venomous animal.

The identification of the animal is of vital importance for the decision of the serum to be applied. The antivenom is specific to one snake genre, having no effect on the others and preferably should be administered within the first 2 hours.

The survival of the patient depends very much on the initial measures adopted. The importance of a good source of information for its identification is invaluable.

Accidents caused by snake bites are a serious social and health care problem by the frequency they occur and for the morbidity and mortality caused. The snakebite can have devastating physiological effects in human body.

 

This project will save lives! Will benefit you and ALL community. YOU will save lives of people and animals!
Through the dissemination of knowledge and ease in identifying, the ecological consequences of unnecessary killing of snakes, that pose no danger and are important to the ecological balance, may decrease dramatically.
Through the Identification Program you will know in advance which animals and local rescue exist in a geographical area. Safer camps and safer rides!

 

We are currently looking for both individual and corporate sponsorship for this greatly needed project!
