Canadian Herpetological Society





Société d'herpétologie du Canada



At the 2013 joint meeting of the Canadian Amphibian and Reptile Conservation Network (CARCNET) and the Canadian Association of Herpetologists (CAH) a motion was passed to merge CAH with CARCNET and to change the name of the organization from CARCNET to the Canadian Herpetological Society (CHS). The CHS website is in development; when it is launched, notice will be given on this site and via email to the members. In the interim, news and events will continue to be announced through the CARCNET webpage. The constitution of the Canadian Herpetological Society can be found through the link below.
