Center for North American Herpetology CNAH Charity Profile
In the spring of 1994, The Center for North American Amphibians and Reptiles (CNAAR) was established as a non-profit foundation incorporated in the state of Kansas by Joseph T. Collins, Emeritus, Natural History Museum, The University of Kansas, and Suzanne L. Collins, professional wildlife photographer, with the objective of promoting education and conservation of amphibians, turtles, reptiles, and crocodilians in the United States and Canada. In 2000, the CNAAR Board of Directors voted to change the name of the foundation to The Center for North American Herpetology (CNAH), to better reflect modern evidence that amphibians, turtles, reptiles, crocodilians, and tuataras are equivalent taxonomic groupings (i.e., Clades or Classes). CNAH continues to operate as a non-profit foundation.
