Environmental Awareness Group Charity Profile

The Antiguan Racer Conservation Project is named after the world's rarest snake.
By the time the project started in 1995, there were only about 50 Antiguan racers left on the planet. Mission is o conserve the critically endangered Antiguan racer snake Alsophis antiguae and other indigenous flora and fauna of the offshore islands of Antigua & Barbuda.'

After the snake was rediscovered on Great Bird Island (see Raiders of the Lost Snake), the Antiguan Forestry Unit gave permission for a six-week survey in 1995. The results of this survey, which showed that the racer was in big trouble, led to the immediate formation of the Antiguan Racer Conservation Project.
The project uses an integrated approach that combines biological research, public awareness, skills transfer, ecological restoration, re-introduction, conservation breeding and habitat management
