The Calusa Herpetological Society
Of Southwest Florida
Thursday, September 2, 2010 - 7:00 pm
SPEAKER & TOPIC : Mike Rochford may lead the most exciting life of any herper in Florida! He’s deep in the thick of things working down in Everglades National Park as a biologist researching the natural histories of big snakes and crocodilians. Mike’s the guy radio-tracking the Burmese pythons by plane, airboat, and on foot out in the hammocks and sawgrass. He’s been doing it full-time the last few years, and is one of the hands-on people collecting the data in the field. Tonight he will bring us completely up-to-date on the state of the invasive crisis with pythons, especially since the hard January 2010 freezes, and will also comment on other invasive species trying to get a foothold in Florida. This will be a GREAT presentation with THE man with the answers – DON’T DARE MISS THIS TALK !
WHO'S INVITED ? You are! Anyone with an interest in any aspect of herpetology or herpetoculture is welcome to attend, learn, and exchange their experiences with our friendly membership.
