Oleksii Marushchak is the Head of Research & Development at BION Terrarium Center in Kyiv, Ukraine. BION Center started in 1993 as a commercial import-export operation but has since pivoted its focus to captive breeding and prorogation with emphasis on rare and endangered species. In this episode, Oleksii discusses BION’s philosophy, how they keep and breed their reptiles, and also their Responsible Herpetoculture initiative that aims to steer reptile-keeping in the right direction. We of course also discuss the heartbreaking events that have taken place in Kyiv this year and the damage and loss BION has suffered as a result. Oleksii leaves everyone with a simple call-to-action for how we can help!
