Amphibian foundation – located in Georgia, this organization is doing great conservation work, and also offers venomous snake handling courses and Master Herpetologist certification courses
Virginia Herpetological Society – I am a member and their website offers many amazing resources to use in the classroom or in educational/outreach programs for identifying venomous vs. nonvenomous snakes, identifying frog calls, and quizzes! (link is to educational resources)
The Orianne Society – science, conservation & education for snakes reptiles & amphibians!
Partners in reptile and amphibian conservation (PARC) – this is an amazing nonprofit focusing on research and conservation of reptiles and amphibians – specifically there are northeast and southeast chapters (depending on what part of Virginia you are in!) that focus on mor regional species and conservation, and they have regular conferences and meetings, and list seasonal and permanent jobs related to herpetology.
Department of Wildlife Resources - this is the go-to for permit related questions about handling animals for research or educational purposes, and always a good idea to reach out to the DWR with questions about permits and restrictions.
