What is USARK FL?

The United States Association of Reptile Keepers Florida (USARK FL), was formed to promote conservation, responsible husbandry, the welfare of reptiles and amphibians, and the hobbyists and businesses both in Florida and those throughout the world that conduct business in Florida. We will accomplish this through science, education, and conservation-based advocacy for the responsible private ownership of reptiles and amphibians.‚Äč

We endorse caging standards, sound husbandry, escape prevention protocols, Best Management Practices, and an integrated approach to vital conservation issues.

Our goal is to facilitate cooperation between Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, the scientific community, and the private sector in order to produce policy proposals and proper rules that will effectively address important husbandry and conservation issues. The health of these animals, public safety, and maintaining ecological integrity are primary concerns. We will follow our mission while defending Florida's stakeholders against overreaching and improper regulations.
