HerpNET is a collaborative effort by natural history museums to establish a global network of herpetological collections data, funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF No. 0132303) and a GBIF DIGIT grant. Sixty-four institutions participated in the HerpNET community (43 in the original NSF grant), with an open ended invitation to institutions who would like to join through VertNet. Currently 64 collections are available on the HerpNET2 specimen searching portal, with data from over 5.5 million specimens available for searching.
