We lead on action plans to help reverse declines in reptiles and amphibians. Amphibian and Reptile Conservation plays an active key role to save important habitats like wetlands and heathlands.
Roads, diseases, pollution, loss of habitat and climate change – all of these issues pose real problems for amphibians and reptiles. Our scientists identify solutions and priorities.
Protecting wild places
Amphibian and Reptile Conservation manages more than eighty reserves in Dorset, Hampshire, Surrey, Cumbria and Norfolk.
Education and awareness
Our staff provide targeted advice and training for farmers and other land owners, managers and consultants, as well as providing advice to the public through our busy Wildlife Information Service. Our education team work closely with children, teachers and community groups – making sure that opportunities exist for young people to get involved in action for amphibians and reptiles.
Pushing for change
In the UK, Overseas Territories and Europe, we are committed to ensuring that new legislation and policy-decisions fit the needs of wildlife, particularly amphibians and reptiles. We voice the needs of our species, working to influence policy relating to agriculture, habitat conservation, wise water-use and planning.
Our campaigns and projects engage the public in conserving reptiles and amphibians, encouraging new audiences to take part in actions to help save these charismatic species.
