Join us in London for the world's second ever Tetrapod Zoology-themed convention, held at the London Wetland Centre on Saturday November the 14th, 2015. The day will include a wide-ranging selection of talks,  a palaeoart workshop event, and more.  Signed books and other merchandise will be on sale. We really hope that this will be a great day for anyone interested in the goings-on of the TetZoo-verse, that there will be something for everyone interested in tetrapod zoology.

The full schedule of speakers and event has yet to be confirmed, but you can see what sorts of things you will be in for on the page for last year's TetZooCon.

 Tea and coffee are provided, and lunch can be purchased at the nearby Water's Edge Cafe.
