The South East Queensland region features diverse natural landscapes and intricate ecosystems, home to what’s considered to be the highest biodiversity in reptile life found anywhere in the world. With such an abundance of reptiles, it’s not uncommon to come across snakes and other reptilian locals taking refuge around our homes as they travel in seek of shelter, food and an annual breeding companion.
In Queensland, snakes are protected by law and considered an intricate part of our natural ecosystem. Attempting to catch or kill protected wildlife is exceedingly dangerous, and carries a maximum penalty of 5 years behind bars, or $77,000 fine.
We’re passionate about the conservation of our wildlife and proudly take part in ensuring it is protected by providing a solution which benefits both man and snake. Relocated reptiles are returned to the best possible habitat, well away from suburbia.
