Amphibian & Reptile Conservation Committee

Committee Charge

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 Committee works in close conjunction with the Partners in Amphibian and Reptile Conservation, a project of the Amphibian and Reptile Conservancy
