Hello fellow herpers! My name is Elisa Wilke, however most people know me as Wrangler Elisa. I have more than 7 years of experience in keeping, rescuing, and doing public presentations with reptiles, arachnids and amphibians. I love all animals, warm or cold blooded, and have had a passion for reptiles since a young age. I now have a wonderful career teaching others about them. I have traveled all across Canada so am very familiar with laws and lots of the major companies and breeders. I have done media spots all over Canada and have spoken in front of crowds upwards of 500 people. I am comfortable answering questions under pressure and am a confident public speaker. I have ran an educational reptile show for almost five years now. I have organized (with the help of some awesome people in our group) our reptile expo this year, organized sponsors, as well as informed media of the event. With all this experience, this leads me to think that I would make a great Communications Director for The Sask Herp Society.
I see the Saskatchewan Herpetological Society as group of people here to support each other, both new and experienced keepers. With each other working as a collective group supporting each other we can make change. We can help the public understand more about one of the most misunderstood species on the planet. By sharing our passion with other we can help conservation in our province for our native species. The future I see for our group is us helping with making a change in the laws here is Saskatchewan, growing our society, and giving the public positive look on reptiles, arachnids and amphibians.
Thank you for you for your time.
Your friend and adventurer, Wrangler Elisa.
