The Herpetological Society of Singapore is a group of herpetology enthusiasts based in Singapore. We are not a registered society, but a group of like-minded individuals who are enthusiastic about the study and conservation of reptiles and amphibians.
We do not believe in harming any type of animals (or humans for that matter). Our priority will always be the safety of the animal and of the people around it. We will never compromise on this issue. We also follow an internal code of ethics, (which you can access at this link) which allows us to uphold this principle.
Anything we post will be scientifically valid. We shall not speculate, extrapolate or gossip. If new developments do arise, we will provide swift addendums to ensure our posts are up-to-date. We will also provide citation of primary sources wherever necessary and possible.
We are not an exclusive group. Everyone can appreciate herps. That is why outreach is a big part of who we are. We want to make the natural world accessible to the public in a safe manner. As such, we will engage in outreach efforts, both online and offline. We also want to empower fellow herp-lovers to share their love and experiences!
So upon these principles, we shall act. We also encourage fellow herpetology-enthusiasts to express themselves and to speak up on issues they feel strongly about. If you want to contribute to the blog (e.g. if you are involved with any interesting herp research) we would love to feature an interview with you on our blog!
