He is the vice-president of the Calusa Herpetological Society, as well as a local herpetologist. The title of his talk is "Laws, permits and legislation trends in the modern herp world". Chris will be going over the basics of federal, state and local laws concerning the trade, collection and possession of amphibians and reptiles as well as what the future holds for these activities. We hope for this to be an interactive session with the audience. So feel free to add to the presentation with examples or corrections to the information given. As we all know, laws, regulations and permitting is constantly changing.
