Visit to Scandinavia

For the next week or so I will be in Scandinavia, visiting Denmark to lecture at an amphibian meeting at the University of Copenhagen, and also travelling to the wonderful Norden’s Ark in Sweden to discuss amphibian conservation. I hope to report back directly via video on our ‘Live’ page,  so anyone who might like see or hear of a specific thing of interest please let me know I’ll be more than happy to oblige.  The Nordic amphibian meeting, which was established 6 years ago by Soren Werther and others from the Swedish Dendrobate Society, attracts herpetologists from all over Scandinavia. I know we get quite a few Scandinavian visitors to the blog, and for those who are going to the meeting in Copenhagen, I very much look forward to meeting you.

  1. Hi Andrew

    I broke into a huge smile just reading the list of species at Norden (including my 2 favourite herps; our very own Natterjack Toads and Sand Lizards)!

    Most of all I was deeply heartened by their ethos of “We only keep animals for which we can provide the best environmental conditions and for those which our work contribute to a long-term survival in the wild”.

    Any more information you can add about their collection and their work whilst you are there would be much appreciated (and any info about any jobs going there 🙂 lol)

    Enjoy the trip – they are very lucky to have you; I know you will give a great lecture!
