A bit about Adela

Hi… I’m Adela

My interest in snakes was sparked by meeting Rowland at University where we were Undergrads back in 1997 studying Ecology & Conservation. His passion and interest was addictive… and soon I began to understand the terms ‘rear-fanged’ and ‘venomous’.

Somehow I became involved in a year-long study of adders (the only venomous species of snake in the UK) and became fascinated by these beautiful creatures as well as becoming adept at handling them.

My personal passion in tropical ecology took me to the tropical rainforest of Peru, where I carried out several order levaquin 500 mg research projects in the Tambopata National Reserve, and the Manu Biosphere Reserve. One of my interests was the effect of human activity, such as logging or hunting, on biodiversity.

Among my wildlife encounters, I was privileged to meet fer-de-lance, bushmaster, and loro machaco the green tree viper… and live to tell the tale! Unlike Rowland (ahem) I have never been bitten by a snake in the wild. Venomous… or non-venomous.

If you have any enquiries about the Project please get in touch… we would love to hear from you.
