About Us

Amphibians and reptiles are under-recorded in North Lancashire, however the lack of data does not reflect an absence of species. ARGNL hopes to redress the low profile of amphibians and reptiles in North Lancashire by becoming a focus for their conservation.

More work is needed to map the distribution of amphibians and reptiles and this will be one of the key aims of the group. ARGNL will also be supporting the work of Amphibian and Reptile Conservation (ARC trust) which will be reintroducing natterjack toads to Cockerham Marsh SSSI in early 2013. We are also working with the Arnside and Silverdale AONB and the Lancashire Wildlife Trust to identify sites at which to focus our attentions.

ARGNL held its second meeting in January 2013, two years after the inaugural get together! During this second meeting the group adopted a constitution, allowing us to become affiliated with ARGUK, and elected a committee. After a promising turn out of keen volunteers, 2013 looks to be a promising year!
