The Amphibian & Reptile Survey of Minnesota was created with three primary objectives in mind.
- Increase citizen participation in amphibian and reptile data collection throughout Minnesota.
- Document turtle-road crossing and mortality hotspots through the Minnesota Turtle Crossing Tally and Count Project, with an emphasis on Blanding's Turtles (Emydoidea blandingii) and Wood Turtles (Glyptemys insculpta).
- Make data available to conservation and research organizations.
In addition to these objectives, the Amphibian and Reptile Survey website serves as a source of information on Minnesota's amphibians, reptiles, and their distribution in the state. Contact us with questions.
