He is very actively involved in education and has started several educational projects for young and old. He also trains rangers to catch snakes in a responsible manner and release them again if these animals cause a nuisance.

Since 2018, Gerry has also started radiotelemetry research on Russell's vipers, which are responsible for many venomous bites in India.

Herpetofauna Foundation supports The Gery Martin Project with providing radio telemetry material for the king cobra, the Russell's viper and the rehoming of other snakes from inhabited areas to ensure their conservation. Gerry regularly organizes fieldwork excursions.
