Human beings will often make the assumption that because a creature is not soft, fluffy and conforms to what society dictates as being beautiful, that it is therefore offensive, ugly, is an enemy to mankind and therefore should be destroyed. Such is the case with snakes, reptiles and most cold-blooded creatures. Stephen Glasgow decided to take a stand when he founded The Alabama Reptile Rescue Sanctuary. The non-profit organization is based upon three principles: Rescue: Rescuing reptiles from unwanted, neglectful, or abusive homes and finding them good, permanent homes. Conservation: Working with conservation groups and organizations locally and world-wide for the future of reptiles and amphibians. Education: Educating the public with proper husbandry information, public awareness of the importance of reptiles in the ecosystem, and conservation efforts locally to get involved. In this segment of The Organic View Radio Show, host, June Stoyer talks to Stephen Glasgow about reptiles and how many species are close to extinction. These creatures are a critical component to the eco-system and without their existence, the landscape could change destroying the natural beauty of the landscape, not to mention contribute to decreasing property values.
