FBH - News
FVE - Established suitability list of approved animals to keep privately.
YouTube - I have been given a project re the social presence of the FBH. Chris has been tied up with so much re various legal and legislative issues, we wanted to tell everyone in the easiest way possible what this means for you. In the next month you will see a variety of short informative videos on the new FBH youtube channel. We are trying to increase awareness of our hobby and to let everyone know exactly what is going on. Our videos will be targeted to a variety of people, such as pet owners, breeders, hobbyists, government, organisations, societies literally everyone. the more people get involved the better it is for us to stop anti exotic pet legislation being passed.
