The goal of Herper of the Week is to highlight people from all walks of life who work with reptiles and amphibians and show their work to others. This week’s Herper of the Week is Steven Allain, a Master’s student at Imperial College of London.
Steven’s work focuses around amphibian diseases and population ecology. One of his current projects is testing the introduced Midwife Toads of the UK for Chytrid Fungus, a deadly amphibian fungal disease. He is also currently the chairman of Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Amphibian & Reptile Group (CPARG)
