If you haven’t yet been to the Joe Maffo’s exhibit at the Coastal Discovery Museum at Honey Horn, then you are missing out on something special. Held outside on Wednesdays, Fridays, and Saturdays, from 11:00 am – 3:00 pm, Joe and his staff of students and volunteers educate delighted crowds about reptiles, chickens, and rabbits, among those he had the day I visited with Johnny D.
Brothers, Miles and Owen, share a python.
Joe carefully wraps onlookers with his friends, then explains how and what they eat, and why they should never be approached in the wild.
“I want people to educate people to respect our wildlife, but not fear it. We are all part of the same eco-system,” says Joe.
And we’re not the only ones who appreciate Maffo’s expertise. Featured in August’s Men’s Health magazine, pg. 34, he’s gone nationwide. Also look for a piece in the Wall Street Journal called What’s in My Bag, for a look at what Joe Maffo carries around with him… maybe you don’t want to know!
