Faculty and students in HERP are part of the Biology program at Purdue Unversity Fort Wayne and are also associated with the Environmental Resources Center, a collaborative effort among faculty, students, and community partners to understand and protect the region’s natural resources.
The Indiana Amphibian and Reptile Atlas provides information about all of Indiana’s herpetofauna, and a chance to contribute your own observations. Learn more here.
