On 6-9.06.2019 BIONs team, namely: Dmitri Tkachev, Sergei Prokopiev, Petr Necas and Oleksii Marushchak, - had an honor to participate in first international conference on herpetoculture “Herpeton – 2019” that was held in San Diego, California, USA. During 4 days we were able to communicate with outstanding personalities in field of Herpetoculture: Philippe de Vojoli, Allen Repashy, Emmanuel Van Heygen, Scott Stahl, Craig Durbin and many others. Dmitri Tkachev and Pert Necas gave talks called “BION Terrarium Center – as a business and breeding operation” and “Creative reserve populations of rare species, with a focus on Parson’s Chamaeleon” respectively. Warm and friendly atmosphere of the conference was enriched by several herping trips to Borrego Desert, excursion to the San Diego Zoo and “Repashy” factory. We do hope that next time we can arrange the conference” Responsible Herpetoculture’’ in Kiev, Ukraine. No doubt such events helps to join efforts of the herp’s community to raise world herpetoculture to the new level.
