The ACT Herpetological Association (ACTHA) partnered with the Canberra District Aquarium Society (CDAS) for Snakes Alive! 2015, a week long educational exhibition showcasing a variety of Australian reptiles, amphibians and, for the first time, threatened native fishes.
Members of the public received an exceptional educational experience with the opportunity to learn about reptiles, amphibians and fish in a hands-on way from dedicated volunteer ACTHA and CDAS members. Funds raised through Snakes Alive! go directly to regional conservation issues such as the Northern and Southern Corroboree Frog breeding programs, grants to assist local university students and projects aimed at furthering herpetofauna protection and recovery, education, training, and research projects.
