ARAV Research & Conservation Grant

Objectives of the Association of Reptile and Amphibian Veterinarians (ARAV) include:

  • To advance programs for preventative medicine, husbandry, and scientific research in the field of veterinary medicine dealing with reptiles and amphibians.
  • To promote the conservation and humane treatment of all reptilian and amphibian species through education, captive breeding and preservation of reptilian and amphibian habitats.

The ARAV Conservation & Research Committee is able to fund clinically-oriented and/or conservation research projects involving reptiles and/or amphibians. The typical awards are in the range of $2000 to $3000.

Final determination of the number and amounts of awards to be distributed will be made by the ARAV Executive committee, based on the recommendations of the Conservation and Research Committee.

It is expected that the research should be completed in 12-18 months.

Recipients of funding will be expected to either present their results at the ARAV annual conference or publish them in the Journal of Herpetological Medicine and Surgery.
