Hands off our Hobby Campaign - The FBH

Many BHS members may be aware that some individuals and organisations are very active in lobbying against the principle of captive maintenance of reptile and amphibian species. The Federation of British Herpetoculturists (FBH) have recently started a campaign to promote the positive aspects of such activity.

The campaign is called `Hands off our Hobby'. An information leaflet on the campaign is below, which also includes details of a petition being organised by the FBH in a bid to positively influence legislators in this area.
