Outreach

Every year we get hundreds of requests to share our reptiles with schools, churches, libraries, scouts, television and radio, and many other events. It is our pleasure to fill as many of these requests as possible, and revenue from our programs helps fund our entire rescue operation. We want our passion for reptiles to be contagious, inspiring others to give reptiles a chance. Please visit our “Events” link to join us at an event or visit our “Book a Show” link to invite us to an event of your own.

In July 2016, Channel 11 News followed us to Ephrata Library and asked some of the kids what they liked best about our show:

Our reptile rescue van, the SUPER GREEN TURTLE MACHINE, is customized to rescue and transport exotic animals.
It’s also equipped with special parade lights, an external sound system, and a power inverter, to make your next event extra special.
Here we are spreading reptile cheer at the Manheim Parade!
