2019 Brown Treesnake Rapid Response Team Training

Detailed Description

Brown Treesnakes are incredibly difficult to find in the dense vegetation common on islands throughout the Pacific Region, and many people have a natural fear of snakes. A primary function of the Brown Treesnake Rapid Response Team is to provide in-depth training to ensure team members are affective in finding and capturing snakes in the field. Trainees also learn how to set up, maintain, and check snake traps, create transects and conduct visual surveys, capture and handling of a range of snake species, and techniques for interviewing someone reporting a snake sighting. All team members attend an initial 2-week course and follow up with a refresher course every two years to re-sharpen their skills and maintain membership on the Team.
