Amphibian and Reptile Conservation (ARC) and Amphibian and Reptile Groups of UK (ARG UK), are delighted to announce 2021’s Herpetofauna Workers Meeting will be held virtually for the first time on Saturday 6 and Sunday 7 February.

We would like the conference to be accessible to as many people as possible including those that would not usually be able to attend in person. We have set our concessionary delegate fee at £35 for ARC Friends, ARG members and students and £75 for non-members for attendance over the weekend.

Running annually for over 30 years, this popular two-day event occupies the centre stage of the herpetological calendar. The meeting attracts a diverse audience representing: conservation organisations, ecological consultants, statutory bodies, land managers, academic institutions and students, and enthusiastic volunteers.

Once again, we offer a full and varied programme with twelve speakers and four workshops lined up this year, giving delegates the opportunity to find out about the latest in herpetofauna research, legislation and best practice and of course the return of our popular evening quiz! Although virtual this year we know our attendees value group discussion and networking with other delegates so extra areas will also be made available through the event platform.

Please download the provisional programme
for details of talks and workshops.
