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.

Within the field of conservation ecology, the importance of invasive species has long been recognized. Invasive animals are of particular concern when they are vertebrate carnivores, perhaps because these taxa are able to persist in diverse habitats and once comfortably embedded in these novel setting, are often able to instigate strong declines in prey species, or indeed, trophic cascades. The pages of Animal Conservation are littered with articles on invasive vertebrate carnivores. Read More
