Indochinese Spitting Cobra Naja siamensis Nasi012 filmed by BBC crew

Sakaerat Naja’s Project is a small independent non-profit research project, dedicated to advancing current scientific knowledge and conservation of True Cobra’s. Our target species Naja siamenis (Indochinese Spitting Cobra) and Naja kaouthia (Monocled Cobra), each listed on the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species, have population trends which are in increasing decline throughout their range. Based at the Sakaerat Environmental Research Station within the UNESCO Sakaerat Biosphere Reserve, North-Eastern Thailand. The project aims to improve cohabitation between humans and snakes by developing recommendations to reduce human/snake conflicts within the reserves rural communities. Supporting the small leadership team are an internationally diverse mix of volunteers, mostly committing to a minimum six-month placement. Allowing the project to fulfill another of its goals, to provide opportunity and professional development for early career ecologists and research scientists from around the world.

If it sounds interesting please stick around and feel free to comment.

  2. Just found your page – hoping to read some interesting notes about your tracking activities there at Sakaerat. Maybe at some point you can make it down to the south – we have N. kaouthia and N. sumatrana. Cheers! VJL
