This Animal Conservation Special Issue has been collated to present a collection of articles covering recent advances in conservation translocations from one under-represented taxonomic group, herpetofauna. We hope this issue will provide a valuable resource to the translocation community and help guide amphibian and reptile translocations in the future.
