New BC Reptiles & Amphibians Website Launches
The new BC Reptiles & Amphibians website is a collaborative venture between Thompson Rivers University (TRU) and the BC Ministry of Environment and Climate Change Strategy (ECCS). This new tool provides descriptions and photos of all of BC’s ‘herpetofauna’ (reptiles and amphibians) and includes features such as newly-updated range maps, Indigenous knowledge and oral tales, and even a kids’ section. This project was overseen by Dr. Karl Larsen of TRU and Dr. Leigh Anne Isaac from ECCS, with help from students at TRU in the Masters of Environmental Science program and Devin Martin from Computer Sciences. The team hopes the website will further knowledge on reptiles and amphibians, and aid in the conservation of this important sector of BC’s wildlife.
