Canadian Herpetological Society CHS – “The Canadian Herpetological Society (CHS) is committed to ensuring herpetology in Canada is welcoming to everyone. We are aware that our field does not have an inclusive history, but we are working to change this. We acknowledge that barriers, including systemic discrimination in academia and elsewhere, have prevented equitable access to education, research, and job opportunities in herpetology. As such, we are committed to ensuring that the CHS is a safe, equitable, diverse, and inclusive environment for all herpers.”
