Amphibians and reptiles give us so much. Let’s give back to them on Giving Tuesday. 

Giving Tuesday: November 28, 2023

Have you ever enjoyed watching a turtle amble by? How about being amazed by the frenzy of fast-moving legs as a lizard scurried across your path or being soothed by a chorus of calling frogs? 

For many of us, these kinds of encounters with reptiles and amphibians are synonymous with our love of the outdoors. The beautiful and fascinating species that share the world with us provide accessible ways to connect with nature. They spark our curiosity, inspire us to feel awe, and tap into our sense of wonder. 

Plus, we receive evidence-based benefits from time with these species in nature, including improved mood, lower stress, and increased attention. Not only do they impact our emotional well-being, but as critical members of the ecosystems they inhabit, they provide us with invaluable services that make life possible. Wildlife and ecosystems give us clean water and air, medicines, climate regulation, flood control, and much more.

Because they give us so much, let’s give back to amphibians and reptiles on Giving Tuesday. Giving can take many forms. Here are some ways you can help amphibians and reptiles on Giving Tuesday:

  • Donate to ARC’s nationwide amphibian and reptile conservation work.

  • Encourage friends and family to give back by sharing an ARC Giving Tuesday campaign post on social media or a campaign email.

  • If you have a yard, plan to create some healthy amphibian and reptile habitat.

  • Volunteer for a local habitat restoration project.
