RATTLED: Conserving Rattlesnakes in Appalachia

Play Video

The Orianne Society has determined one apex predator to be of vital importance to the Appalachian region, yet it is facing tremendous challenges towards its conservation. It is an animal that we have felt threatened by, and have demonized for centuries, compromising our own capacity for understanding them. 

This animal is the Timber Rattlesnake.

We made this documentary with the aim of increasing education about Timber Rattlesnakes and their conservation needs, as well as decreasing fear and persecution.  Please support us in making more documentaries like this one so we can bring all of our focal species to the spotlight.
