We provide are an organisation that extends beyond publications to direct support of individuals and organisations globally in their conservation efforts. We foster a global conservation community based on independence, transparency, and accountability.


Our International President and Coordinator, Dr. Robert Browne is devoted to herpetological conservation, an expert in a wide range of scientific fields, and has an exceptional track record of the successful management of projects for some of the most iconic threatened amphibians.

Our International, Regional and Thematic Chapters are presided by experts in their fields with significant publication records and excellent track records of herpetological conservation, with support and oversight by inclusive, active, and powerful, Management Boards and social networks

OUR STRUCTURE:  We build regional capacity through our Regional Chapters, foster the empowerment and training of young conservationists through direct involvement in publication and journal management, and support conservation initiatives. We use strategies and protocols that are powerful, effective and resilient and are not aligned with any nation, regional or institutional interest.

Our Regional Chapters provide ongoing Volumes of the ARC, and develop social networking and support structures for both their regional supporters and those in the international community.  Our Thematic Chapters provide Volumes of the ARC and global leadership through research directions, protocols, and essays from individuals with a solid track record of practical experience and significant contributions to conservation.  We encourage individuals with the motivation to become leaders in their field by forming a Regional or Thematic Chapter of Amphibian and Reptile Conservation.
