BLACKSBURG (WSLS) – One Virginia Tech graduate is dedicating his time and talents to making sure snakes are safe in South America for the next generation.
Mohsin Kazmi is fresh off a 60-day expedition to the Peruvian Amazon rain forest to study anacondas.
The eight-person team wanted to learn more about the effects of gold mining on that region’s ecosystem.
Their efforts were captured in the Discovery Channel special called “Eaten Alive,” and although no one was actually eaten alive, Kazmi says this research is still important for the future.
Kazmi plans to go back down to South America in just two weeks to continue his research.
