The congress was held from 10 to 12 October 2019 in Saint-Girons, Ariège (Occitanie Region). It was organized jointly by the CNRS Station de Écologie Théorique te Expérimentale, Association des Naturalistas de Ariège and the Association Ecodiv.

In this 2019 edition, the objective was to promote and communicate the main scientific advances of recent years. Whether for technical questions or biological answers, these advances are always an advantage to understand the herpetofauna and its conservation.

It focused on the ethical and awareness-raising aspects that constitute a fundamental basis for the protection and conservation of animals. The reduction of invasive methods affecting species and consideration of animal welfare are essential changes to the sustainability of herpetofauna activities.

The venue of this congress inevitably leads us to follow in the footsteps of the Pyrenean herpetofauna, focusing on all developments related to the endemic and emblematic species present in the Pyrenees.

Other important topics were distribution and conservation. Updating the status and spatial distribution of species through field data acquisition or spatial modelling tools remains an essential basis for conserving and improving knowledge.
