Background information and definitions
Species identification skills play an important role in recognising the conservation needs of reptile populations, as well as the threats some reptiles may pose to humans. Where staff across a range if sectors (e.g. government agencies, building and development sector, conservation organisations) have good identification skills they may be better able to respond to situations involving reptiles with appropriate and proportionate actions, with benefits for wild reptile populations.
