    A.S.R.K. or Australian Society of Reptile Keepers ?

    Hypothetical question for now

    What can you personally bring to form such a society ?

    How you would you contribute to an organisation that could possibly be a legal voice for us ?

    Please don't be shy now ... or I'll die wondering

    Cheers
    Sandee :)

    Organisation, tenacity, lateral thinking, marketing, damn good cocktails and probably a bit of the ' gift of the gab'

    There is a body called the Reptile Keepers Association already in existance which I thought was rejigged a couple of years back to become the National Australian RKA. Pythoninfinite could have a bit more indepth info on the topic.

    If each state had such a formally constituted association with a national umbrella it would assist in lobby governments.

    Count me in. I am sick of them trying to kick us weirdos around. Just because they aren't cute and fluffy they don't give a crap.

    Definately needs to be a combined effort and have everyone on the same page....

    Why not work together on the project? As every state has different laws to abide by 'chapters' of the same organisation would most likely be more manageable.

    IMO .. the more small active Reptile Societies the better and it looks good on paper for lobbying purposes

    It's time to raise our image and work towards gaining respect from the general public and the government authourities controlling "protected" native fauna

    Roger I would love it if we could all be in the same book, let alone the same page

    Cheers
