    after reading the thread "Are you a current member of the ATS?" >>click here<< I became curious about how many tarantula/arachnid societies are out there, how large are these (= how many members do they have) and how many of the members of this board are also members of one or more of these societies.

    Here is a list of societies I have found so far: Are there any more? About how many members does each of these societies have? ...

    all the best,

    Hi Martin,
    I saw you updated your list with the Malaysian Society, but not the Aust. Arachnol. Soc????? Particularly when you have groups like the Am. Arachnol. Soc., who's mission statements are extrememly similar to the Aust. Soc????

    Is it because you don't have an online URL?? I'll find it for you :)

    Here you are :) http://www.australasian-arachnology.org/

    You could also mention the forthcoming, nearly in place Australian Tarantula Association, it is not running yet (we are about a week or so away), but there is a temp page here and a URL ;)

    I have heard there is talk about a Mexican or Central American Society being formed , not sure as to how far this has developed.
