February Meeting Collage for website

Please join us on Wednesday, February 17th at 6:45 pm to learn about some of the amphibians of WNY, and how you can help protect them! Our speaker will be Penny Felski, Herpetological Manager at the Buffalo Zoo. Penny will be discussing the Buffalo Zoo’s fascinating and successful Hellbender conservation project.

She will also introduce us to FrogWatch USA, a Citizen Scientist program which recruits volunteers to collect and report information about local frog and toad populations. Training for this year’s FrogWatch USA will be held in March, so come and find out more about how you can become a Citizen Scientist in your community!

The Western New York Herpetological Society is an organization of enthusiasts in the greater Buffalo area who share an interest in reptiles and amphibians, both in the wild and as pets. The mission of the WNYHS is to advocate for the welfare of wild and captive herps through education, conservation and research.

We assist herp keepers in maintaining healthy pets by providing up-to-date husbandry information in monthly meetings, online care sheets, and educational demonstrations.

You can learn more about the programs and outreach initiatives of the WNYHS by clicking on the menu tabs, found on the top and bottom of each page. Thank you for your visit, we hope you return again soon!
