Who is the WRHA?

The West Rand Herpetological Association (WRHA) is a non-profit association for like-minded reptile and amphibian keepers.
Our meetings include talks on a wide range of topics, and the speakers we get are experts in their fields. Regular field excursions are organised during the summer months to give the opportunity to view our awesome herp related wildlife in their natural environment!
