Southeast Asian Reptile Conservation Alliance

SARCA is a multi-stakeholder initiative aimed at improving the conservation, sustainable use, and ethical/responsible trade of reptile skins from Southeast Asia. SARCA’s mission is to advance responsible and transparent supply chains of reptile skins from Southeast Asia and drive improvements in the trade’s operating environment.


SARCA’s membership includes luxury brands, manufacturers (tanneries, processing facilities), industry intermediaries, trade associations, non-profits, and academic and government institutions participating in the trade of reptile skins coming from Southeast Asia. ​​


SARCA works towards its vision through two main workstreams:

  • Research and Monitoring: this includes stakeholder identification and engagement; development of materials, training, and processes related to population monitoring; and data collection

  • Sustainable and Transparent Supply Chains: this includes the development of a risk assessment framework and key sourcing principles
