AFWA Amphibian & Reptile Subcommittee Products

As part of the Association's Amphibian & Reptile Subcommittee activities, members and partners undertook five projects in the areas of State Wildlife Action Plan implementation and capacity building.

AFWA's Amphibian & Reptile Subcommittee submitted and received funding for a 2009 Competitive State Wildlife Grant that engaged five states directly--Missouri as the lead along with California, Georgia, Michigan and Nevada--and was supported and/or endorsed by an additional 15 states (Alabama, Arizona, Florida, Idaho, Kansas, Kentucky, Maryland, Massachusetts, Montana, South Dakota, Texas, Utah and Wyoming). 


As part of this grant, subcommittee members and partners undertook five projects in the areas of State Wildlife Action Plan Implementation and Capacity Building. Final reports and products will be posted as they become available.


State Wildlife Action Plan Implementation Products:

  • Development of regionally specific priority species lists and climate vulnerability modeling of select priority species across the United States.

  • Development of a monitoring framework and guidance for using volunteers/citizen scientists for data collection.

  • Review and finalization of criteria and implementation plan for designating Priority Amphibian & Reptile Conservation Areas.


Capacity Building Products:

The State of the Union report is a joint project of AFWA’s Amphibian & Reptile Subcommittee and Law Enforcement Committee. It includes contributions from and accounts for 49 states and the District of Columbia by state biologists and law enforcement staff. The State of the Union is up-to-date as of February 2012 and will be maintained to incorporate changes each year.
