Reptelligence

The vision for Reptelligence is that it will be a world leading catalyst for promoting low stress handling, husbandry, veterinary care, and housing for reptiles (and all animals) living in human care, with a focus on the use of behavioral and environmental enrichment and training through positive reinforcement. As we learn more about the neurology and cognitive abilities of reptiles, amphibians, invertebrates, fish and all living organisms, it is only further reinforced, that all living things have behavior, make choices and are influenced by consequences. With more information, comes better, more informed care. This includes changing some of the traditional ways that many species are kept and cared for and granting these animals access to more choice and control over their own outcomes—giving them the agency that they deserve and that is already being extended to so many other animals around the world through training and enrichment programs. This conference is committed to a focus on enhancing choice, control and communication for all individuals from tiny insects to the most charismatic of mammals and we are beyond thrilled to be invited back to be a part of the conference and join in the discussion again in 2019!
