Founded in 1961, the BVZS is the specialist division of the BVA and is recognised as having responsibility for exotic pets, companion avian species and zoo animals.

The autumn meeting includes visits to the Cotswold Wildlife Park or the Crocodiles of the World attraction on 23 September.

Delegates will get the full Oxford University student experience, as the meeting will take place at Pembroke College. Accommodation and dining at the college is also included. The BVZS pub quiz will also make a return.

This year’s invited speakers are Richard Griffiths, president of the British Herpetological Society, and parrot behaviourist Greg Glendell.

BVZS has an international membership and is involved in almost every aspect of the care and welfare of exotic pets, zoo animals and wildlife.
