The Alberta Amphibian & Reptile Conservancy

AARC - Our Mission

The Alberta Amphibian & Reptile Conservation (AARC) is focused on conserving and managing habitat for the reptiles and amphibians native to Alberta; to educate the general public about the value of all herptofauna, and to promote respect and enthusiasm.

AARC – Our Vision

The vision of the Alberta Amphibian & Reptile Conservation (AARC) is to ensure that all of Alberta’s reptiles and amphibians have abundant habitat and sustainable populations for today and tomorrow, keeping the common species common in perpetuity.

History/About Us

The Alberta Amphibian and Reptile Conservancy was formed in the spring of 2013 as a result of the Alberta Reptile Enthusiasts Meeting. An avenue for like-minded individuals to protect the native habitat of reptiles and amphibians in Alberta was deemed necessary.
AARC is an affiliate club with Nature Alberta. This gives our membership access to Nature Alberta’s e-magazine, store discounts and access to liability insurance for the society.
