A new Swiss Herper

Postby Noah Meier » Wed Jun 22, 2016 9:01 pm

Hi everybody

My name is Noah Meier, I'm a 20 years old swiss herper living in Kanton Aargau.
At the moment I'm working for Pro Natura where I'm collecting data of distribution of reptiles and amphibians in Kanton Aargau. Half a year ago I finished matura with a project about habitat selection of C.austriaca in Jura of Kanton Aargau. In september next year I'm going to start studying biology.

My fascination for herps started by the age of six years with some E.macularius in terrarium. Later this extended to the keeping of several reptile, amphibian and invertebrate species.

Since I've seen the first berus in nature in 2010 my passion for fieldherpetology is getting bigger and bigger. For the last 4 years I've done several herp trips mostly together with my father Roger. Maybe you have seen a few reports from his side. Because I was writing already most of those reports I registered now myself and try to share our sightings and shots a bit more frequently.

As soon as possible I'll upload pictures of our trip last week in southern France. If you guys are interested I can also upload pictures taken during trips from the last few years (Peloponnese, Cres, Giglio and some more).

Bests,
Noah
