South Australian Herpetology Group

FrogID is a national citizen science project that is helping us learn more about what is happening to Australia’s frogs.

We investigate the behaviour, ecology and evolution of lizards. We are part of the Department of Biological Sciences at Macquarie University.

The Illawarra Reptile Society is a well established & ever growing community of reptile keepers, breeders & enthusiasts

The Australian Society of Herpetologists is the leading association for professional herpetologists in Australia.

The Australian Reptile Online Database is a searchable database containing information on all currently recognised Australian reptile species. Information/Data

The West Australian Herpetological Society Inc (WAHS) was formed to promote a greater interest and awareness of West Australian herpetofauna.

The mission of the World Congress of Herpetology (WCH) is to promote herpetological research, education and conservation, by facilitating communication between individuals, societies and other organisations engaged in the study of amphibians and reptiles.

The VHS was formed over 30 years ago to bring together like minded reptile enthusiasts. The VHS is a non-profit organisation dedicated to learning and sharing all we can about reptiles. Victorian Herpetological Society

American Society of Ichthyologists and Herpetologists The American Society of Ichthyologists and Herpetologists (ASIH) is an international organization devoted to the scientific fields of ichthyology and herpetology. Society
Herpetologists League The Herpetologists’ League, established in 1946, is an international organization of people devoted to studying herpetology — the biology of amphibians and reptiles. HL publishes two scholarly journals — the quarterly Herpetologica, which contains original research papers and essays, and the annual supplement Herpetological Monographs, which contains lengthy research articles, syntheses, and special symposia. Society
Partners in Amphibian and Reptile Conservation To conserve amphibians, reptiles and their habitats as integral parts of our ecosystem and culture through proactive and coordinated public-private partnerships. Society

Amphibian Specialist Group The Amphibian Specialist Group is a global network of dedicated experts who donate their time and expertise to create a community from where practical amphibian conservation can be advanced based on a solid foundation of science. This global network consists of over 300 members in over 40 Regions/Countries enabling the ASG to act on a global scale. Organization
Inter-American Convention for the Protection and Conservation of Sea Turtles The Convention promotes the protection, conservation and recovery of the populations of sea turtles and those habitats on which they depend, on the basis of the best available data and taking into consideration the environmental, socioeconomic and cultural characteristics of the Parties (Article II, Text of the Convention). These actions should cover both nesting beaches and the Parties’ territorial waters. Organization
Turtle Survival Alliance The Turtle Survival Alliance (TSA) is an action-oriented global partnership that is committed to zero turtle extinctions in the 21st century. Organization
IUCN Red List The IUCN Red List of Threatened Species™ is widely recognized as the most comprehensive, objective global approach for evaluating the conservation status of plant and animal species. From its small beginning, The IUCN Red List has grown in size and complexity and now plays an increasingly prominent role in guiding conservation activities of governments, NGOs and scientific institutions. The introduction in 1994 of a scientifically rigorous approach to determine risks of extinction that is applicable to all species, has become a world standard. In order to produce The IUCN Red List of Threatened Species™, the IUCN Global Species Program working with the IUCN Survival Commission (SSC) and with members of IUCN draws on and mobilizes a network of scientists and partner organizations working in almost every country in the world, who collectively hold what is likely the most complete scientific knowledge base on the biology and conservation status of species.

CrocBITE: Worldwide Crocodilian attack database CrocBITE, the Worldwide Crocodilian Attack Database is an ongoing attempt to compile all reported attacks by any crocodilian species on a human, the purpose of which is to better understand risk factors leading to such attacks and ultimately help to improve human safety and, as a consequence, crocodilian conservation.

The Reptile Database This database provides a catalogue of all living reptile species and their classification. The database covers all living snakes, lizards, turtles, amphisbaenians, tuataras, and crocodiles. Currently there are about 9,500 species including another 2,800 subspecies (statistics). The database focuses on taxonomic data, i.e. names and synonyms, distribution and type data and literature references. There is little other information in the database, such as ecological or behavioural information. The database has no commercial interest and therefore depends on contributions from volunteers. It is currently supported by the Systematics working group of the German Herpetological Society (DGHT) and a small grant from the European Union through the Catalogue of Life project. Information/Data
World Turtle Database The foundation of this site is a database of the location of every species of freshwater and land turtle that has been collected by a museum, private individual, or referenced in a publication. Our site is a continuation of the work done by John B. Iverson in his 1992 book A Revised Checklist with Distribution Maps of the Turtles of the World. Because the Web offers an interactive and dynamic publishing environment, we have supplemented Dr. Iverson’s original work with more mapping options and additional information for the general public, such as a glossary and pictures.

Crocodilians: Natural history and conservation Crocodilians: Natural History and Conservation is the Internet’s largest crocodile site, established in 1995. Written by a crocodile specialist, it’s an ever-growing database of everything you need to know about crocodiles, including all the different species, their biology, conservation, how they talk, and even their captive care.

HerpMapper HerpMapper is a not-for-profit cooperative project, designed to gather and share information about reptile and amphibian observations across the planet. Using HerpMapper, you can create records of your herp observations and keep them all in one place. In turn, your data is made available to HerpMapper Partners – groups who use your recorded observations for research, conservation, and preservation purposes. Your observations can make valuable contributions on the behalf of amphibians and reptiles. Information/Data
