The British Herpetological Society

Donate to the BHS

The Society is a registered charity No.205666.  We are run and operated almost entirely on a voluntary basis – we do not employ staff. Council members and others give freely of their time and energy to support and manage the society, including editing and producing our quality publications.

You can therefore be confident that any donations made to the society will be contributing directly to our work and activities – you can see details of these on other pages in this site.

By leaving a bequest to the Society you can make a significant contribution to the study and conservation of reptiles and amphibians. This has never been more important; the world's herpetofauna faces threats of unprecedented scale, and only a great deal more work - which inevitably means more money - has any chance of alleviating this situation. The BHS has the necessary expertise, but not enough funds, to make a major impact in this vital area. A legacy to the BHS is a gift that will live forever.
