Philadelphia Herpetological Society

Philadelphia Herpetological Society

The Philadelphia Herpetological Society (PHS) is the oldest, continually operated reptile group in North America. It was founded by Roger Conant (herpetologist) and a group of like-minded herpetologists in 1952. The current president is Mark Miller.

PHS has published the "Bulletin" and occasional newsletters throughout its history. They seem to meet infrequently at present but operate a reptile rescue for animals in the Philadelphia metro area, and a wildlife conservation area in Southern New Jersey.
