Costa Rican

International Herpetological Symposium

After a five-year hiatus, the renowned Costa Rican International Herpetological Symposium

makes a triumphant return with its fifth edition.

Despite its small size, Costa Rica boasts a remarkable 5% of the planet's biodiversity.

The nation is particularly renowned for its rich herpetofauna, boasting an impressive density

of over 440 species of reptiles and amphibians.


The Symposium promises to be an enriching event, featuring enlightening presentations and interactive workshops on herpetology and conservation from organizations and experts.


Delve into the latest discoveries and research from across the Americas and beyond, or seize the opportunity to share your own work with fellow participants and enthusiasts.

Marking its fifth installment at Selva Verde Lodge since its inception in 2013, the herpetological symposium continues to inspire and engage all those passionate about this diverse and important field.
