Mission Statement

Our mission is to promote understanding, appreciation, and conservation of
reptiles and amphibians; encourage respect for their habitats; and foster
responsible captive care.

Description

Membership is open to anyone with an interest in reptiles and amphibians
("herpetofauna" or "herps"). Our members include professional biologists and
amateur naturalists with years of experience, as well as those with a beginning
interest in herps (either keeping and breeding them, or seeing them in the
wild).

Our society provides a number of services for
members and for the community. Speakers at DFWHS meetings provide informative
programs, and we network together to exchange experiences or get together for
field trips. We provide educational events for the community in conjunction
with museums and nature centers. The society has helped survey the herps found
in two DFW area nature centers. We regularly go on field trips to various
places in Texas, photographing and documenting reptiles and amphibians and
sharing the data with universities, the National Park Service, etc. Our
newsletter, the Cross Timbers
Herpetologist , is widely praised for its original
articles and photos.
