Seeking rapid change, the German Palaeontologist, Zoologist, and Geologist, Prof. Dr. Hermann Schleich, researched publications and data and developed a list of the various amphibian and reptile species with a focus on the “kachugas” (Nepali for “turtles”).

 

He founded the Amphibian and Reptile Conservation of Nepal (ARCO-Nepal) in 1997, based on the following four pillars:

  • presenting scientific knowledge
  • launching public awareness campaigns
  • offering species and nature education
  • contributing directly to species conservation
