About us


The aim of the foundation is to collect capital to support projects that promote animal welfare, specifically aimed at the animal groups belonging to the order reptiles, amphibians and arthropods and the associated biotopes and related species that enable the survival of these animal groups.

Mission Statement

The Herpetofauna Foundation was born from an idealism. We strive to protect reptiles and amphibians, but also to educate about these often misunderstood animal groups.

Work method

First and foremost, the Herpetofauna Foundation is a foundation that collects money for the aforementioned projects. Active involvement in the work is only initiated if the relevant projects give permission for this and a project can always let us know what form of support they would like to receive from us.
