The North American Herpetological Education and Research Project (HERP) database is a repository of sightings and information on North American herpetofauna contributed by amateur citizen scientists and professional herpetologists. These sightings are collected and moderated with the goal of disseminating observational herpetological data to appropriate scientific, academic, governmental, regulatory, research agencies and other approved projects. It is a great tool for helping to map distribution of North American reptiles and amphibians.
If you would like to record and contribute your own field observations you can do so by entering your finds at www.naherp.com . This will allow you to view and store all of your observations in one place, including viewing them in Google Earth, view your finds as a life list, help you contribute much needed information for the future conservation and understanding of our reptiles and amphibians, and much more.
Entering data into H.E.R.P will allow you to provide some of your own finds, if you choose, to some of the many requests we get for data.
