Help us give a voice to the UK’s disappearing frogs, toads, newts, lizards and snakes – saving species, improving habitats and enhancing lives in the process.
Understanding threats and taking action
Roads, diseases, pollution, loss of habitat and climate change – all of these issues pose real problems for amphibians and reptiles. Our experts identify solutions and priorities. We lead on action plans to help reverse declines in reptiles and amphibians.
Protecting wild places
Amphibian and Reptile Conservation manages more than eighty reserves across the UK and plays an active key role to save important habitats like wetlands and heathlands.
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. We 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. Find out more about our work at www.arc-trust.org.
