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.

A Bequest to the BHS: Making a Legacy
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.
For details of how to make a legacy to the Society, please write to: The Secretary, British Herpetological Society c/o Zoological Society of London Regents Park London NW1 4RY or email
Become a BHS Supporter
Of course, we’d be delighted to welcome you as a full BHS member, and we have a range of membership options to help this – but if you really prefer not to, please do consider becoming a BHS Supporter instead!
The `BHS Supporter’ option enables you to easily make a regular donation to help our work. By doing this, you’ll be directly supporting reptile and amphibian research and conservation, both in the UK and globally.
And please remember that the BHS is operated and managed on a voluntary basis – we have no paid staff. So you can be confident that 100% of any donations made will go directly into supporting the Society’s main operations – publishing leading journals, supporting vital research or funding important conservation projects.
