Scales and Slime: Exploring the Roles of Amphibians and Reptiles

[Project WILD Webinar Series]

Speaker: Kerry Wixted, Amphibian & Reptile and Invasive Species Manager at AFWA

Learn about the importance of herpetofauna for ourselves and for our ecosystems as well as neat adaptations, life cycles, and facts about these fascinating creatures. This talk will also cover the Partners in Amphibian and Reptile Conservation (PARC) and how to promote herpetofaunal conservation within your ecosystems.

Kerry Wixtend is the Amphibian, Reptile, and Invasive Species Program Manager for the Association of Fish and Wildlife Agencies. Prior to her current position, Kerry has worked on education and outreach initiatives in Maryland, including Project WILD, and loves to teach about traditionally unloved wildlife.
