EK Magazine May 2021

In this issue we take an in-depth look at the whole Lampropeltis genus, speaking to some of the leading breeders and hobbyists in this field. What comes next for this diverse and often confusing group of snakes?

Marmosets are the most sold primates in the UK and new legislations aiming to regulate sales and protect these complex animals are imminent. We spoke to Charlie Crowther at Monkey World to tell us more.

The Lazarus taxon hold some of the most exciting conservation stories ever told; we share the tales of reptiles that appeared to rise from the dead.

Finally, guest writer and marine biologist Hannah Rudd describes the immense pressure sharks are under and how that appears in British waters.

As always, we have our species spotlight, fascinating fact and expert opinion which digs into bioactive substrates this month.

The motivation for creating Exotics Keeper Magazine was a determination to help, care for and protect exotic animals, with a charity component being part of the plan - eventually. Then, in April 2020, the crisis caused by the Covid-19 lockdown pushed the charity plans into fast-forward. Here's what happened next.

Despite the lockdown being lifted, zoos and exotic animal sanctuaries have been hit hard during the Coronavirus crisis. Following a period where zoos had no visitors, no fundraising events and nowhere near enough donations, many are still struggling to feed their animals. EK Fund has donated over ?3,000 to zoos, rehoming centres and wildlife parks over the last few months as part of the first funding project.

Over the coming months and years the EK Fund be selecting eligible and worthwhile charities, organisations and projects to donate to, keeping you up to date with campaigns and donations via their website and the Exotics Keeper Magazine.
