How can biodiversity be preserved in a world in which traditional ecosystems are increasingly being displaced by “man-made nature”? Biologists at the TU Darmstadt and ETH Zurich have developed a new concept for conservation measures that incorporates current landscapes formerly considered ecologically “of little value”.
Since 2009, the Amphibian and Reptile Conservancy has been providing support services for herpetofaunal conservation efforts for a number of partners, benefiting amphibians and reptiles worldwide.
With all the development, sprawl and other high-intensity land uses across the country, it’s good to know there are still a few places left where the great outdoors and all its wild inhabitants can thrive.
One of the most important missions at the Amphibian and Reptile Conservancy is turning conservation knowledge into conservation action. This process, also known as “applied conservation biology,” helps scientists pass along the latest, cutting-edge information to professional land managers, policy makers, and you, the general public.
