About Us

Welcome to the Norfolk Amphibian and Reptile Group (Norfolk ARG) website.

Norfolk ARG promote amphibian and reptiles in Norfolk. We are one of a number of ARG groups across the country, all working under the ‘ARG-UK’ umbrella.

The core objectives of the organisation are:

  • Conservation
  • Monitoring
  • Advising and Consulting
  • Education and Training (for both members and the public)


This is an exciting time for Norfolk ARG. The group has recently relaunched after a short break and is looking for new committee members to help shape the group.

If you want to make a positive difference for amphibians and reptiles in Norfolk, then send us an email. We’d love to hear from you.

Native amphibians and reptiles

Native Norfolk Herpetofauna include the Adder (Vipera berus); Grass snake (Natrix natrix); Slow worm (Anguis fragilis); Common/Viviparous lizard (Zootoca vivipara); Common frog (Rana temporaria); Common toad (bufo bufo); Natterjack toad (Bufo calamita); Great crested newt (Triurus cristatus); Palmate newt (Lissotriton helveticus) and Smooth newt (Lissotriton vulgaris).

Norfolk is also the reintroduction site for the native Pool frog (Pelophylax lessonae) which became extinct in the UK. A 2005 reintroduction project saw specimen brought over from Sweden to re-establish a UK population.


Alien species

Like many other counties, Norfolk is also home to populations of non-native herpetofauna species. It is important to monitor these species to study their impact.
