Students / School day Herpsymposia 2019

On October 10, 2019, a unique event will take place for students in education that deal with animal care, ethology, ecology, biology, herpetology, toxicology, wildlife management, veterinary medicine, etc.

On this day, internationally renowned speakers will give lectures and master classes for students and teachers for a day. However, the day offers much more; you get the chance to meet the speakers, network with them, there are stands and a special documentary will also be shown. All food and drink will also be fully included this day, as well as the entrance to Burgers zoo. Anyway a great experience and a very educational day.

As a student / teacher, let yourself be inspired by people who have been in the profession for years. They will give tips and advice on how you can start a career after your studies and can offer a helping hand. It is unique for the world that such a large number of speakers have traveled to the Netherlands for this symposium, and even more special is the fact that they offer their time to such an “education day” which has never before taken place!

The objective of the Herpetofauna Foundation is therefore to organize such an education day at every edition of our, larger, international symposia. The day is the perfect opportunity for you to take a big step in your education, not only in the field of knowledge, but also in particular because of the opportunities that networking with speakers, organizations, teachers and fellow students offer. Participants also receive personal proof of participation.
