Speakers

The 1st European Croc Networking Meeting was held at Crocodiles of the World in Brize Norton, UK from 4-6 October, 2016 with an attendance of 54 number of participants from 10 countries. Our host was wonderful helping us pull together this idea into a meeting in only 4 months. We also coincided with the first ever CrocFestUK.
