Welcome to the International Herpetological Society Website
The I.H.S. was originally founded in 1969 by a very small group of reptile enthusiasts and currently caters for approximately 750 members both in the UK and overseas. There are a number of regional branches throughout the UK which all meet on a monthly basis.
Our committee is committed to the ongoing research and propagation of all reptile, amphibian and chelonian species. Only with your interest and help (by joining the society) will this work be possible. A number of our members are actively involved in Herpetology professionally and give their support to the society in numerous ways including articles for our quarterly journal 'The Herptile' and by giving of their very valuable time to provide lectures at local branch meetings.
