pigs faceSupport student attendance at the
2022 Reptile and Amphibian Husbandry Symposium


Year: 2022

Roman Muryn

Grant: £500


The Advancing Herpetological Husbandry group (AHH) and the British Herpetological Society (BHS) aim to improve all aspects associated with keeping herptiles (reptiles and amphibians). The National Centre for Reptile Welfare has been established now for 3 years. It is located at Hadlow College Kent for animal husbandry.  

Our organisation annually holds a 2-day reptile husbandry symposium. The weekend will include workshops and technical lectures on the Saturday and formal presentations on the Sunday, and there will be demonstrations and talks from zoo specialists, vets and expert keepers.  

We reach out to animal husbandry colleges and offer recognition to the most promising students.  We are seeking support in subsidising the travel and costs for students which may otherwise not have opportunity to participate in such a gathering.
