Centro de Estudios e Investigaciones Herpetológicas
The "Centro de Estudios e Investigaciones Herpetológicas" (C.E.I.H.) is a non profit, non government institution dedicated primarily (but not only) to herpetology research and was declared "of Municipal Interest" by the Municipality of Dolores, Buenos Aires, Argentina, where the centre is located.
We do a lot of field work, especially related with wildlife reproduction, management, conservation and preservation; and we also participated in several international projects such as faunal rescue operations in Brazil.
The C.E.I.H. has been providing at no cost, scientic advice, dehydrated snake venoms, live/preserved specimens, and local support and facilities to different argentinian and foreign researchers and institutions which requested our collaboration.
Educational activities in cooperation with museums, schools, universities and private and government organizations were developed from many years ago.
The C.E.I.H. has no financial support from government or privates and the activities developed are suported just by volunteers.
