Founded by Donald G. Broadley in 1965, the Herpetological Association of Africa (HAA) is dedicated to the study and conservation of reptiles and amphibians, particularly those of Africa. The Association encourages the study of all aspects of herpetology both in nature and in captivity and is devoted to supporting young scientists who will make future advances in these fields. The HAA is committed to increasing knowledge about African herps by collecting and disseminating this knowledge through our two publications, conferences and other means. The Association also fosters a responsible and enlightened attitude towards all reptiles and amphibians amongst the public and Members of the Association. Moreover, the Association is dedicated to cultivating a diverse society built on collaboration, encouragement, tolerance, and mutual respect for all, regardless of background.
