When a snake bites, time is of the essence.

This is one of the reasons that the Ministry of Health and the Ministry of Agriculture have come together to ensure the establishment of a Centre for Excellence for Snake Bite education.

Staff of Wellness Centres in Region 7 attended the first of many workshops to come, as the Ministry of Health looks towards formalizing the new Centre for Excellence.

  1. What is the frequency of snake bites in St.Lucia? I commend the respective ministries for establishing a snake education center. There staff should go to the schools around the island to educate the youth about snake bite prevention.

  2. The ministry of Agriculture needs to start putting a bounty on the head of those ferdelance snakes (don’t know if that’s the correct spelling ) I don’t see any good the snakes does to the people of this land so its time to eradicate these raptiles and sametime people earning something while doing
    I grew up in snake infested areas of babonneau / marquis estate/ grand anse estate and was among the lucky few didn’t come in contact with any snakes thank god for that

  3. Actually there is many life saving medical breakthroughs produced using snake venom . It would be a shame to kill off an animal out of fear , that may be the next possible cure for cancer , or some other terminal disease.
