In 2019, the BION team started the RESPONSIBLE HERPETOCULURE project as a new solution to global reptile conservation. This event was presented by Dmitri Tkachev, BION’s director and founder at the 1st International Conference ”Herpeton 2019”(San Diego, USA) on June, 2019. The project is created together with Sergei Prokopiev, a BION regular partner. We strongly hope to have many supporters and followers soon.

Also, we upgraded old areas and developed new ones for keeping and breeding reptiles. The intensive work was done on BION staff training and professional development.
