Please help inform field herping and herp keeping policy by taking the 2013 Herpers Survey!
Sponsored by a generous grant from SWCHR (www.southwesternherp.com), a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, this survey is, to our knowledge, the first of its kind in that it attempts to capture the opinions of the 'herper community' on a range of topics related to observing herps in the wild as well as domestic husbandry. Many of the questions focus on those activities as they pertain to SWCHR's area of interest.
We're not going to sugar-coat it: due to its comprehensive nature, the survey should take anywhere from 30 to 60 minutes to complete, depending on your experiences both field herping the Southwest and keeping herps from that area. Even if you don't have any experiences in that regard, there are still several general-interest questions on which we hope to gather data, so please participate and tell your friends to do the same! You do not have to live in or herp in the Southwest, or keep herps from that area--the survey will address issues and accommodate responses from participants worldwide.
The survey can be accessed at www.surveymonkey.com/s/herpersurvey2013 and will be available through February 28, 2014. The more people that contribute, the more accurate the results!
