Nature Park to host reptile exhibitions

Youth & Careers

THE Port Moresby Nature Park’s reptile exhibit will be officially opened to the public on Sept 7.
The construction of the new facility, Reptile Haus, which started in January 2017, will enable the park to educate visitors on the threats faced by reptiles, the need to conserve them in their natural environment and educate the public on how to protect themselves and ensure the safety of common reptiles.
The exhibit’s construction was supported by Red Sea Housing Ltd, ExxonMobil PNG, Niugini Glass and Aluminium and the Sir Brian Bell Foundation.
“The ability of multiple organisations to come together and jointly support and fund our new Reptile Haus facility has been wonderful as this facility will provide important messages on education, conservation and health,” Nature Park manager Michelle McGeorge said.
The new reptile exhibit will house different reptile species including snakes and monitors turtles and amphibians.
To celebrate the opening of the Reptile Haus the park will run a snake show from Sept 7 to Oct 13 that will include a variety of activities such as snake presentations every weekend, first aid and demonstrations.
