London ARG - new year, new start! meeting JOIN US ON ON ZOOM on Thursday 28th January 7:30 - 9:00 pm

Do you live in London or Great London? Would you like to find out more about your local amphibians and reptiles? Would you like to get involved in local conservation? Then please join us on Thursday 28th January at 7:30 pm on Zoom, and you can meet some of your local amphibian and reptile groups, hear about the different projects they are involved with, and find out how you too can help!

Please note this is a free online event powered by Zoom. Please sign up on Eventbrite and we can send you a Zoom link before the event.


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.

Herpetofauna habitat management training

Fri 21st October, 2011

~ 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 –

+ Denham Lock Wood SSSI (Wet Woodland) and 
+ Frays Farm Meadows (Grassland) 

Of which both hold good populations of reptiles and amphibians to discuss on-site management (and surveying techniques) for herps between these two very different habitats.

Both reserves are less that 15 minutes walking distance from the Visitor Centre.

~ Agenda~
[10am-11am]: Introductions and power point presentation

[11am]: Coffee/tea break

[11:15-12:00pm]: Informal discussions on habitat management issues

[12-1pm]: Lunch (time to show off your sandwiches)

[1-3pm]: Reserve visits and management discussion in context to reserves, grazing, connectivity and herps

[4pm]: Finish time (no later than)

This training opportunity is free and would most benefit those who actively work on sites with herpetofauna and carry out habitat management practices.

If you are interested, please let CLARE Officer Sophie ( know as soon as poss! As spaces are LIMITED!

Further info regarding the site and the day's events to be reconfirmed nearer the time.
