Passionate about animals since always, I turned over time to herpetology and more particularly to our scaly friends, the snakes. Many people hate them and I think that's why I naturally got interested in them to make my own idea. And after more than 10 years, I am still fascinated by them and every day I play the role of a fervent defender with my relatives, friends and other people around me, in order to show them how much they deserve that we are interested in them by passing over the general public opinion. Indeed, these animals undergo social influence transmitted almost from generation to generation with often erroneous received ideas. The conservation of herpetofauna is at the heart of my interests as well as the mediation around herpetofauna. In addition, I had the opportunity in M1 to create a scientific mediation project on the Alsatian herpetofauna, in order to make these intriguing and fascinating animals known, while raising the awareness of the younger generations to their conservation.

I am more precisely passionate about the Viperidae on which I would like to dedicate my career by doing conservation on Viperidae in America on Sistrurus, Crotalus, Lachesis, Agkistrodon, or in Africa on Atheris, Bitis. Passionate since my childhood, this project could only be destined to me and until now I have done everything to achieve it, starting with a self-taught training that I have conducted for several years in parallel with my studies, with for example the creation of recognition materials on the Viperidae of the world. In addition to that, I have many projects related to reptiles, such as my professional Instagram account on the Viperidae of the world for the purpose of discovery for the general public, the launch of my YouTube channel on the Viperidae in order to offer a more diversified and entertaining content, or in parallel my Viperidae breeding project that I would like to couple with a structure in order to reintroduce them in the wild.
