Join us in London for the world's first ever Tetrapod Zoology-themed convention, held at the London Wetland Centre on Saturday July 12th, 2014. The day will include a wide-ranging selection of talks (ranging from cryptozoology and speculative zoology to vertebrate palaeontology and conservation biology), a palaeoart workshop event, a quiz, and whatever other events seem appropriate. 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, and that the event is successful enough that we'll want this to become a regular thing.
Confirmed speakers include Carole Jahme, Helen Meredith, Darren Naish, Neil Phillips, Mike P. Taylor, Paolo Viscardi and Mark Witton. The palaeoart workshop will be jointly led by John Conway, Bob Nicholls and Mark Witton. Additional speakers to be confirmed.
Tea and coffee are provided, and lunch can be purchased at the nearby Water's Edge Cafe.
