We are a nonprofit. Your generous support will be directed towards unrestricted core research funding. This flexible funding allows us to allocate resources where they are most needed, ensuring that we can continue to research the Asian herpetofauna and discoveries that inform public knowledge. Your unrestricted support will make a vital difference — providing the long-term research stability and independence necessary for our most important conservation work.

Plant a Tree Donation


per plant

Our ‘Plant a Tree’ campaign is a major forest restoration program on Java Island. Our goal is to plant 35 million trees in a 17,000-hectare bare land on Java to slow the connected crises of climate change and biodiversity loss. A 35 million is a big number, but we know we can do it together.

to Research


per project

Our student research grant program (USD 300) is designed to support undergraduate student research in Herpetology. Our goal is to promote ecology and biogeography research among university students as most of the reptile and amphibian species are neglected to study.

Sponsor a Graduate Student


per student

Our graduate research programs are designed to support graduate students who encounter unexpected research expenses (research supplies or core-facility charges) that are needed to complete their dissertation on time and help to develop their careers without any delays.
