Welcome to the Indiana Herp Atlas!
The Herp Atlas is an information portal about the herpetofauna (amphibians and reptiles) of the state. It is based on observations supported by photograph or audio recording "vouchers" to give certainty to the observations.
The Atlas is intended to achieve the following goals:
1. To provide scientifically sound information about the herpetofauna of Indiana.
2. Increase citizen participation in amphibian and reptile data collection throughout the state.
Contribute your own observations to improve our understanding of the distribution of our species and establish baseline data to show declines (or increases!) in their ranges over time. Use the link above right to submit observations, or get the HerpMapper app on your phone!
You are also invited to help refine the species accounts. Let us know if you have suggestions or content to recommend!
3. To provide data to support conservation efforts on behalf of our native amphibians and reptiles.
4. Link the visitor to other online resources supporting herp conservation.
