Help us end cruel rattlesnake roundups

Rattlesnakes are worthy of our respect and protection, yet they’re being driven from their dens, transported to “rattlesnake roundup” festivals, then slaughtered in a misguided effort to clear areas of these declining predators. This spring, Dallas Zoo’s reptile experts are taking a stand against these inhumane events.
