The Herpetofauna Albanian Society (HAS) is a non-governmental organization working on the scientific
research and conservation of the environment and different species of amphibians and reptiles in Albania. HAS was founded in 2001 from a group of biologist and ever since has grown in membership
not only in biology and ecology but in other disciplines as law and economics, too. HAS’s budget is based
solely on income from projects and donations.
Our three main programmes – research, education and conservation – provide a framework for
executing projects aimed at furthering the understanding of the biology and ecology of the amphibians
and reptiles, human impact in their populations, and public participation in their conservation.
