N.A.F.H.A. - North American Field Herping Association
The North American Field Herping Association is a nonprofit volunteer organization. Our mission is dedicated to uniting amateur, private and professional herpetologists from Canada, the United States and Mexico toward the common goal of better understanding, conserving and managing native North American reptiles and amphibians.
Founded in 2006 by professional herpetologist Jeff Lemm of San Diego, California, with input from professional, private and amateur herpetologists from all regions of North America, NAFHA is rapidly becoming a primary source of herpetological information and field assistance for researchers, conservationists, legislators and wildlife management organizations working with North American herp species.
Among the many projects undertaken by NAFHA regional chapters is our Herpetological Educational and Research Project (HERP) database. The information in the database is a continually expanding collection of current herpetological data, gathered daily from the field by NAFHA members working in Canada, Mexico and the U.S.A.
We welcome you to explore the HERP database, read about the regional projects our members are involved in, and visit our various forums. We also extend an invitation to you to become a member of NAFHA and help us achieve our goals of creating better conservation and management of our native North American reptiles and amphibians.
