The Tucson Reptile Museum is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization whose mission is to present the general public with positive and enthusiastic education on reptiles, amphibians, arthropods, and their conservation needs in an enthusiastic and positive light. The Museum attends frequent community events and conventions to bring the education to the public. We have been doing outreach education programs in and around Tucson, Arizona since 2013 and received our nonprofit status in 2017. Most of our programs are free or low cost as we focus our outreach on schools and organizations who often cannot afford zoo visits or museum field trips.
Currently, the Tucson Reptile Museum is a mobile outreach program with plans to set up a local, physical location. As a nonprofit, our ability to have a physical location is directly related to the community support and backing that we receive from our donors. You can find Lizz (our director) at the Tohono Chul Reptile Ramble presentations every Friday during event times - please check their website for availability and further information.
General upkeep on the animals, medical visits, and the cost of business all add up quickly for a nonprofit. If you would like to help us grow, please consider donating to our cause. Financial and material donations both are greatly appreciated and necessary for our growth!
