The 2020 International Herpetological Symposium will be held June 17th-20th in Atlanta, Georgia. The state’s abundance of reptile and amphibian species and its diversity of ecosystems make it a key place to host IHS. IHS is proud to work with Zoo Atlanta and the Amphibian Foundation in building an exemplary meeting.
Each year the IHS is held in a different location and hosted by a zoological, herpetological or herpetocultural institution. Its purpose is two-fold:
- 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.
- 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.
