Amphibian/reptile regs book offered

The West Virginia Division of Natural Resources (DNR) has a new 
Reptile and Amphibian Regulations brochure available, according to 
DNR Director Frank Jezioro.  The brochure  can be viewed by
clicking on the publication image under regulations at wvdnr.gov/wf.  
It also can be found on the DNR home page under “Wildlife Diversity.”  
Paper copies are available in limited quantities at DNR district offices, 
the state headquarters in South  Charleston and the Elkins Operations 
Center.
“Reptiles and amphibians are a valuable wildlife resource. The DNR 
established these  regulations to provide opportunities for people to 
study, appreciate, and use the state’s natural heritage without harming 
reptile  and amphibian populations,” Jezioro said.  “The scientific 
community and conservation-minded individuals have been asking
for these regulations, and we are pleased to be able to provide 
protections in this way."
