Adder man – Chris Monk on his dedication to protecting venomous snakes


Chris Monk has been helping protect the British adder (Vipera berus) for many years. As well as being Britain's only venomous snake, it is also the most northerly distributed one. Unfortunately populations are in decline, but important progress is being made.

OPAL caught up with Chris to talk about his work with this well-known reptile and ask if there are any ways we can help protect it too.
