Snakes are the most common danger for the village community of the Sundarban.  People of Kumirmari Village live snake, but have little knowledge about venomous and non venomous snakes. Out of fear indiscriminately people usually  kill the snakes. There is a huge knowledge gap for preparedness and response for snake bites incidence.
