On the Web - The 2019 International Herpetological Symposium will be held June 19th-22nd in Belize City, Belize. The country’s abundance of terrestrial and marine species and its diversity of ecosystems make it a key place in the globally significant Mesoamerican Biological Corridor. Although the total number of reptile and amphibian species inhabiting the country is unknown, over 139 different species have been identified to date.

Each year the IHS is held in a different location and hosted by a zoological, herpetological or herpetocultural institution. Its purpose is two-fold:​

  1. To provide an annual symposium for the dissemination of information and research pertaining to the natural history, conservation biology, captive management and propagation of amphibians and reptiles.
  2. The publication of such information, which is available for free via the IHS website.

​Individuals from all areas of herpetology and herpetoculture are involved in the planning of each event, and all are invited to attend.
