Welcome to Scandinavian Herpetological Symposium, the first Herp Symposium, ever to be held in Copenhagen – Denmark.


Reptiles and Amphibians are in general not a common subject in the community of mankind. Luckily the European Herpetological Society is growing every year, spreading information and education the public about these fascinating and important creatures.


With that in mind, the social media have made the close contact to other fellow ”Herpers” less interactive since the beginning of Facebook. Small communities, forums and Herp Societies have slowly died out, and important shared information about critically endangered reptiles/amphibians are now only posted on social media where they often disappear in the masses.


Therefore, we set out on a mission to bring all the Herpetological Interested people in Scandinavia and Europe together once a year, with a whole day in the name of our beloved passion. Our first Symposium Will be held in Copenhagen the 22nd of September 2018, and the line-up of Local and International Guest speakers will make up for a whole day of both Scientific and captive Herpetological speeches! There will also be plenty of time to network with other guests and speakers.



- There is a maximum of 150 tickets sold, so act quickly to get a seat for this fantastic day!


- Food, Drinks and Merchandise will be available at low prices at the Symposium, so sit back and enjoy your lunch while listening to the fantastic speakers!


- NO LIVE ANIMALS are allowed at this Symposium – THIS IS NOT A REPTILE SHOW! If you don’t apply to this rule, you will immediately be kicked out of the symposium.
