The 2024 Global Amphibian and Reptile Disease Conference (GARD24) will take place as part of the 10th World Congress of Herpetology (WCH10), which will be held 5-9 August, 2024 in Kuching, Sarawak, Borneo.

Please note that the WCH10 website has been updated to include a call for abstracts and travel grant applications. To participate in GARD24, please submit your abstract via the WCH10 portal and select “GARD24” when submitting.
