Researcher looks at human impact on rattlesnakes
A Thompson Rivers University professor is looking at how human development is impacting rattlesnakes
Rattlesnakes are one the most recognizable reptiles in B.C.
They're also a species that's facing considerable pressures because of human development.
This summer, Thompson Rivers University professor Karl Larsen is looking at some of the ways people are impacting the snake.
He hopes the work will eventually lead us to better understand how to preserve the population.
The CBC's Jenifer Norwell went out with Larsen to find out more about his work.
