Herpetofauna Workers’ Meeting – details announced

Details of next year’s national conference for those involved in the conservation of amphibians and reptiles are being released today.

The Herpetofauna Workers’ Meeting (HWM), is the main event of the year for those interested in learning more about the latest conservation techniques and research into the UK’s amphibians and reptiles.

The event is organised by ARG UK (the Amphibian and Reptile Groups of the UK) and Amphibian and Reptile Conservation.

At the conference in Leicestershire, Pond Conservation’s director Jeremy Biggs will be speaking and also leading a workshop on pond management. Other topics will include an update on amphibian disease in the UK, and new educational approaches to promoting snake identification and appreciation.

“The conference is an opportunity to meet lots of interesting people for an enjoyable weekend, as well as a chance to hear a great range of speakers on a diverse range of conservation issues.” said organiser John Baker of Amphibian and Reptile Conservation, and ARG UK representative.

The 2010 HWM will be held in Hinckley, Leicestershire on January 30-31st 2010. For further details please see our flyer and booking form

The all inclusive rate includes registration for both days of the conference, accommodation for the Friday and Saturday evening, lunch for both days, the evening meal on the Friday night and evening meal (and social event) on the Saturday evening.

“The recent Amphibian and Reptile Conservation/BHS conference in Bournemouth earlier this month was a sell out, so don't miss out on the HWM by leaving registration to the last minute.”
