The Amphibian and Reptile Conservation Committee is responsible for identifying effective means for member states, provinces, territories, and federal agencies to address and advance herpetofaunal conservation, including through improved policies, funding avenues, and via interagency and external partner collaboration. The committee seeks opportunities for increased interactions with other AFWA committees, and provides guidance or assistance on cross-cutting issues involving amphibians, reptiles, or their habitats, as needed or requested. In addition, the committee creates a forum for discussion, information sharing and dissemination of emerging threats and development of new conservation tools and solutions.
The products shown here resulted from a 2009-2012 Competitive SWG funded effort, sponsored by the Committee.
