BOB COOPER | Snake Bite & Venomous Creatures Kit

In Australia we have around 170 species of snakes including sea snakes and burrowing snakes, 30 of which are considered to have life-threatening venom. Bob believes the most effective first - aid treatment for venomous snakes and many creatures is the pressure and immobilisation technique. (Check out the demonstration clip on the home page).

Unlike many first aid kits that contain non-elastic crepe bandages, this kit has 10cm compression bandages that can maintain the correct pressure and will remain tight during transport of the victim. Three bandages are necessary to apply pressure to an adult males leg.

The included first aid booklet can equip you with the know-how to handle bites and stings from the following deadly Australian creatures: land, sea and burrowing snakes, funnel web spiders, blue ringed octopus, and cone shells.

A must have in all first aid kits, backpacks and glove boxes. Ideal for reptile handlers and bush walkers alike.

ABOUT BOB COOPER:

For over 30 years Bob has honed his survival skills by learning from many traditional cultures. His experiences include living for extended periods with Aboriginal people in our Western Desert, sharing bushcraft abilities with the Bushmen of the Kalahari in Botswana also with the Lakota Sioux Indians in Dakota and jungle time with the Orang Asli people in Malaysia.

His roles have included instructing the Special Forces Units, conducting survival courses throughout Australia, lecturing with the Texas Parks and Wildlife Service on survival in the Mexican Desert and delivering wilderness lessons in the UK.

Bob’s long term commitment to protecting and enhancing the enjoyment of people venturing or working in the Australian bush, won his Outback Safety and Survival Course the prestigious Excellence in Safety Training Award, from the State chapter of the Safety Institute of Australia in 1996.

As a society we need to recapture the survival skills and empathy with nature which our ancestors instinctively knew. True appreciation of our natural environment may be the only factor that saves it and, on occasions, us.

Teaching is Bob’s contribution to this necessary new awareness.
