Annual amphibian and reptile event

09 February 2012

This is one of the projects under Jersey’s Biodiversity Partnership (Eco-Active Biodiversity) and is being run in partnership with the Department of the Environment. The aim of the day is to raise awareness of the importance of amphibians and reptiles.

The event includes:

  • talks
  • workshops for existing volunteer recorders and for individuals who would like to take part
  • the opportunity to learn about local amphibian and reptile identification and survey methods and protocols

Each year there is a different focus to highlight a species or issue relevant to conservation in the Island. For 2012, and to coincide with the Year of the Lizard, the focus will be on the third of Jersey’s lizard species, the legless lizard known as the slow-worm Anguis fragilis. During the morning the group will explore this fascinating species with an emphasis on how to find them when conducting surveys.

The afternoon will be focused on Jersey’s National Amphibian and Reptile Recording Scheme (NARRS). The scheme is a partnership project led by the UK’s Amphibian & Reptile Conservation Group (ARC-UK) and has been running in Jersey for 4 years. 

For more details or to book a place, please contact Nina Cornish at the Environment Section of the Department of the Environment.
