Every day, the demand grows for more boas of all subspecies. The magnificent animals appear in so many colors, and make such wonderful, docile pets. However, this has greatly raised the demand for imported specimens. Breeders love to get their hands on new patterns and breed back into the original roots. Nowdays, captive boas are so outbred to different subspecies that there are few 'true' boas labled as their genetics really are. It has caused a high demand for wild caught specimens.
Not only are wild speciments terrified and aggressive, removing them from their natural habbitat leaves an impact on the eco system.
Our program tours local community areas, raising awareness against importing and teaching children about rainforest eco systems. We also take an active role in petitioning against laws preventing the owning of nonvenomous snakes. More dogs kill humans yearly than any constricting snake. Rarely, when a snake does injure someone, it is always the fault of a lack of common sense. There are no unprovoked snake attacks.
In addition to spreading the "boa fever," we also provide certified captive bred animals to breeders nation wide. Every dollar you donate goes toward the care of the animals and transporation to spread our shows a little farther. If you do not enjoy snakes, think about the eco system and the destruction of the rainforests. Every boa lost is another blow to an already unstable environment. Help us sow the seeds to recover what has been lost.
