All the people that are interested in the reptiles and amphibians can be a part of this society. Herpetology is the study of amphibians and reptiles. The members of the Minnesota Herpetological Society work to create awareness about the reptile and amphibians amongst the common people. The present president of the MHS is Christopher Rueber.
The reptiles have been given the status of dangerous animals that need to be killing, or they might harm you. However, this is not entirely true.
These animals are just like any other wild animals, and they only attack the humans to save themselves. These animals might look scary, but they are like any other animal on the planet. Furthermore, people also consider these reptiles and amphibians as pets. However, if they are not able to take care of them, they let them free. The MSH takes these animals into the shelter and finds a new home for them. They also spread awareness about these reptiles amongst the people as much information about them is not available openly.
The MHS also take in volunteers that are interested in these animals or want to learn more about them. Minnesotan has a lot of amphibian and reptile species that need to be taken care of, and the society aims at educating the public and also helping all these helpless animals in need. They have come up with various initiatives like the Turtle Crossing The Road to help the turtles that get hit by the cars. They also run various adoption programs all over the state. All this is done to ensure that they are protected against getting extinct. It is important to understand that all the creatures play an important role in the environment and we need to put safeguards to protect each one of them.
