Scaly Trails is a wildlife conservation organisation that strongly believes in education as a vital tool for conserving our ecosystems and diverse wildlife. Scaly Trails’ mission is to educate people about wildlife and their conservation, especially of the lesser-known and most feared fauna -- reptiles -- and to debunk the myths about these creatures that lead to their destruction and ongoing conflicts with human communities. Scaly Trails believes that by creating awareness about these reptiles & other wildlife and the need for their protection, both human and animal communities will thrive.
