Announcement of forthcoming meeting:

South-East Regional Meeting of the Herpetofauna Groups of Britain and Ireland

"Applying Ecology to Conservation"

Sunday, 9th November

The Plaza Suite, Stag Theatre
London Road, Sevenoaks, Kent

The SE Regional conference will be hosted by KRAG this year and will focus on how we can use information about amphibian and reptile ecology to enhance their conservation in all situations. The increasing development in the South East means that now, more than ever, everyone concerned in the protection of herpetofauna needs to work together.

Talks by those involved in herpetofauna conservation, research, surveying, recording, habitat management & local planning will be followed by an open discussion on how best to compensate for development.

A full programme will be posted in due course.

Location:
The Plaza Suite is situated behind the Stag Theatre in London Road. Access to the car park is via South Park.

The cost for the day will be ˙6.00, including tea and coffee (lunch not included, but many venues nearby). Please enclose a cheque payable to the Kent Amphibian & Reptile Group with your name, address, email and telephone number (and organisation if relevant), and return to:

Dr. Sue Young, Krag Treasurer
Flat 1, 14 Mount Harry Rd, Sevenoaks, Kent, TN13 3JH

(If you require confirmation of your booking, or a receipt, please enclose a sae)

If you would like more details about the event please email either Sue or Lee directly (or post here).
