South Africa is blessed with a rich diversity of fauna and flora including a staggering variety of amazing snake species. ARK-KZN was started in 2010 in response to a growing need to improve the level of reptile husbandry in South Africa and as a think tank and information sharing platform for like minded reptile enthusiasts.
With that in mind, if you believe that together we are an informed and powerful voice for our concerns as keepers, breeders and traders of reptiles and you agree that responsible and voluntary self regulation is preferable to unnecessary legislation. If you are committed to the conservation of all reptiles and you are willing to work with us in educating the public and eliminating the destructive prejudices that surround reptiles and amphibians, we would love to have you join us in spreading the truth and helping to enlighten others as to the wonder of these awesome creatures.
We believe that with the help of like minded individuals and organisations we can champion our message of education and reptile conservation.
