The Great Canadian Snake Quest
In 2018, Adam Shoalts led a special expedition for the Royal Canadian Geographical Society to find and photograph in the wild Canada’s rarest snake, the endangered Blue Racer. The success of that expedition is what led to The Great Canadian Snake Quest, a project to see if, over the course of his adventures, he can find and photograph each of Canada’s different snake species in the wild. To date, Shoalts has encountered 12 of Canada’s 33 snakes on his expeditions. The quest will not only focus on finding and photographing each of Canada’s native snakes but in the process bring attention to the environmental threats they face.
