frog Habitat Management Guidelines for Amphibians and Reptiles

Habitat Management Guidelines for Amphibians and Reptiles
Partners in Amphibian and Reptile Conservation (PARC)

Mission: "To conserve amphibians, reptiles and their habitats as integral parts of our ecosystem and culture through proactive and coordinated public-private partnerships.”

Quote:
Habitat alteration, fragmentation and loss are collectively considered to be the primary challenge in the conservation of amphibians and reptiles (i.e., herpetofauna). With herpetofaunal populations declining, and human populations expanding and using more land, PARC has developed a series of regionally specific best management practices, or Habitat Management Guidelines (HMGs) to provide proactive guidance for improving the compatibility of land management practices with these animals.
Quote:
These guidelines:
  • use the best science available
  • are easily understood by and practical for land managers and private landowners
  • present measures to help maximize compatibility with existing management objectives, or to optimize management actions specifically for herpetofauna
  • provide guidance on the management and restoration of habitats such that amphibians, reptiles, and many other wildlife species may benefit

Availability
Currently, the new editions of the Southeast, Northeast, Midwest, and Northwest guide are available for purchase. In addition, pre-orders are being accepted for the Southwest guide. See below for details on how to obtain these guides; new information will be posted as it becomes available.
