Snake Charmer

A few weeks ago I had the opportunity to photograph an aspiring model along with some exotic animals she works with as part of the group WILDLIFE DEFENDERS. WILDLIFE DEFENDERS is a wildlife conservation outreach group run by Bridges For Brain Injury, Inc.'s program members. Using live native and exotic species, the "Defenders" visit schools, youth groups, senior facilities and community events conducting formal and informal programs and displays. They provide interesting and stimulating information about their animal ambassadors and encourage environmental and wildlife conservation and awareness. Members also discuss brain injury issues and the importance of safety and prevention practices. While running this exciting community-based program, members work on personal goals such as socialization, organization, communication, memory retention, planning and pre-employment skills; in addition to improving their self-esteem and confidence by being viewed as role models by school-aged children.
