With the aim of promoting the research and conservation of herptofauna, every winter IBE researchers take part of an Herpetology Symposium, in collaboration with Escola de la Natura (Parets del Vallès).

During the last years, attendees to the event have received talks on the latest research on herptofauna, they have joined night outs to watch nocturnal reptiles and amphibians, and they have also received training on amphibians and reptiles manipulation for fieldwork.

Many of the offered workshops within the symposium as well as the outings are aimed at general and family audiences.
