Project Overview

The Carolina Herp Atlas is a project developed by the Davidson College Herpetology Laboratory and Davidson College Information Technology Services. The primary objective of the Carolina Herp Atlas is to provide detailed data on the distribution of reptiles and amphibians of North and South Carolina. The resulting database can be used by:

1) you; to track your personal observations,

2) other herpers and amateur naturalists; to view species occurences via county-level distribution maps, and

3) Scientists; to understand activity periods, habitat relationships, current distributions and other facets of amphibian and reptile ecology in the Carolinas so that we can better conserve these important components of our natural heritage.

Before you can submit records to the Carolina Herp Atlas, you must first register.

Please submit observations and help track the reptiles and amphibians of the Carolinas!
