Bettering Captive Husbandry

Bringing together private keepers and zoological professionals to share our experience and our knowledge, one with another.

In partnership with the British Herpetological Society (BHS) this conference is being held at the birthplace of the International Herpetological Society (IHS), Drayton Manor Zoo.

This is a meeting for all those who believe it’s time to get rid of myths and assumptions, and base reptile husbandry on a combination of good science, new technology and long-term studies of the animals in the wild.
