About Us

The Indonesia Herpetofauna Foundation (IHF) is a non-profit organization based at the Ciliwung Herpetarium in Bogor, Indonesia. It is dedicated to conserving amphibians and reptiles in Indonesia through research, education, and capacity building.

Indonesia Herpetofauna Foundation (IHF) is a non-profit organization established in Bogor, Indonesia on 5th September 2018.

Our mission is to conserve Indonesian amphibians and reptiles through innovative methods based on evidence.

We hope to achieve this through:

  • Creating a network of individuals and organizations that actively contribute to herpetofauna conservation in Indonesia.
  • Implementing science-based conservation projects, both in-situ and ex-situ.
  • Being involved in collaborative projects with external partners. 

We are now a proud member of Species Obscura Foundation.

The IHF logo is a rectangle with the text 'INDONESIA HERPETOFAUNA FOUNDATION', where the 'O' in the word 'HERPETOFAUNA' is replaced by a snake's head, made up of two circles.

This represents the fact that herpetofauna are a vital component in our ecosystem that we can't let disappear.

The fact that the head of the snake is made up of two circles that overlap each other reflects our organization which is dynamic, flexible, and creative.

The simplistic, clean, and clear typography represents our work ethic, striving for intellect and integrity.

The two lines parallel to the words 'INDONESIA' and 'FOUNDATION' reflect IHF as an inclusive space for conservationists, striving for equity both internally and towards external partners.
