There are several Herpetology groups at least 3 Frog groups,a native
fish group, at least one Arachnology group, several native plant
societies, groups for Bats and Cetaceans and Mammals. That list is
not exhaustive, As well there are the various groups that fall under
"Field Naturalists". Then you have the Earth Sciences related groups.
It seems that if it walks, crawls, flies or just sits there and looks
vaguely interesting, there is a group of people out there determined
to bother it :)

Are there full scale spider listers or mammal twitchers or the
