Conservation and Monitoring of British Amphibians and Reptiles

Natural History Live by Dr John W Wilkinson

The Amphibian and Reptile Conservation Trust (ARC) was established in June 2009 focusing on wider needs of herpetofauna conservation, providing the UK focus for all aspects of reptile and amphibian conservation. Dr John Wilkinson joins us to discuss ARC’s new monitoring scheme launching soon. We will look at the species found in Britain, the problems they’re facing and which ones are most in need of conservation and what’s being done about it. Finally, he will explain how can citizen scientists, like yourselves, can get involved in the monitoring scheme!
