  • Establish and monitor the distribution and status of amphibians and reptiles in the area

  • Actively conserve reptiles, amphibians and their habitats through practical work

  • Foster peoples' interest in amphibians and reptiles and their conservation

  • Develop the skills of those interested in these species
