The Canadian Herpetologist 1(1) through 4(1)

b2ap3_thumbnail_CanHerp4.jpg

ZenScientsit.com is happy to welcome the Canadian Herpetological Society to the growing list of societies which can be joined through ZenScientist.com. The CHS publication, The Canadian Herpetologist, is available online immediately upon joining the CHS.

The Canadian Herpetological Society is a registered Canadian charity that advances reptile and amphibian research and conservation in Canada by:

  • promoting scientific research on reptiles and amphibians and disseminating the results;
  • facilitating collaboration among amateur and professional herpetologists;
  • advancing public understanding of our native reptile and amphibian species, the threats they face and the conservation solutions that exist; and
  • promoting, supporting and leading conservation and stewardship projects.

CHS is made up of researchers, conservation practitioners, naturalists, educators, and other individuals with an interest in Canada's reptiles and amphibians.

The Society holds an annual general meeting and conference where members can present their work, learn what others are doing, and identify opportunities for partnerships and collaborations.

The Canadian Herpetologist is a bi-annual publication of the CHS that is available to all members online (only) through ZenScientist.com.
