The British Herpetological Society is one of the oldest and most prestigious Societies of its kind in the world. Founded in 1947 by Britain's leading herpetologists, the BHS still enjoys national learned status.
The Society's Herpetological Journal is ranked as one of the leading scientific publications devoted to herpetology. The Society actively supports Conservation, Research, Education and responsible Captive breeding.
Our membership subscriptions give you instant online access to the latest issues of our publications and a range of other benefits.
Whether you are a conservationist, a scientist, a field naturalist, or if you are interested in reptile and amphibian husbandry, the Society has something to offer.
The Young Herpetologists (YH) is the junior section of the British Herpetological Society open to anyone from the age of 5 to 17 years.
Based on the platforms of sound conservation practice and regard for animal welfare, the YH is an ideal way to encourage today's new generation of young amphibian and reptile enthusiasts.
This section will host periodic BHS reports on topics or areas that we consider relevant to BHS members. The reports are all Open Access as want to make the information within them freely available.
