London Amphibian and Reptile Group is actively involved in the conservation of all native species of amphibian and reptile and their habitats in London. We aim to establish and monitor the distribution and status of amphibians and reptiles in the area, to foster an interest in amphibians and reptiles and their conservation and to develop the skills of those interested in these species.
Help Us Out!
We would like to encourage everyone who has an interest in native UK Reptiles and Amphibians to join us and become involved with conservation in the capital. We have a particular keen interest in sourcing new sites to survey and monitor if possible - so please mention us to any landowners who may have habitats they would be willing to offer for volunteer surveying* and help provide sites for future practice and training.
We also need people to simply spread the word that we exist! A strong part of the LARG future is to become a key contact in supporting volunteers from all backgrounds in getting involved with local conservation projects, perhaps even provide opportunities to lead projects - and evolve London's awareness of it's current Amphibian and Reptile status.
*Important - In being volunteer based, the insurance and nature of our surveys are not suitable for commercial level surveys. If you require Consultancy level surveys, try CIEEM - Professional Directory.
~ Where, the Why & How~ ARC’s Reserve Manager Gary Powell will be giving a Herpetofauna habitat management training on Friday 21st October at Colne Valley Regional Park Visitor Centre (near Uxbridge) for those who are interested in learning more about management techniques to benefit herpetofauna and how to implement them.
The day will consist of a power point presentation (ooo!) and informal discussion of your queries followed by lunch (yum!). During the afternoon we will be going out on site visits to TWO London Wildlife Trust Reserves –
