Globally, amphibians and reptiles are least studied faunal groups. Studies on amphibians and reptiles of Nepal have been scattered and the research projects to date have generally been narrowly-defined. They are local in scope, limited in duration and confined mostly to protected areas. There has been virtually no systematic countrywide attempt at information gathering for entire group of herpetofauna. As conservation and legislation are designed, in part, based on these studies, there are limitations that have serious implications for designing long-term conservation programmes.
To materialize the vision and achieve the different objectives, the organization has formulated different activities. The following are some of the undergoing activities. The organization extends its requests and welcome support, cooperation and suggestions from different individuals, organizations (community-based, government and non-government) and institutions.
- Documentation of herpetofauna of Nepal
- Species distribution mapping
- Cooperation with different stakes of society to disseminate information regarding the status and immediate needs for the conservation of herpetofauna and their habitats
