Wildlife health and disease
As Tom Langton explains in this edition of Natterchat, Froglife has been involved in investigating amphibian disease for a number of years.
This also includes tips on recognising Chytrid and Ranavirus.
You can visit the Garden Wildlife Health project website here, and report any dead or ill animals in your garden to the vets at the Institute of Zoology by clicking Report Disease. The site is packed with other information, including factsheets on the most common diseases effecting amphibians, reptiles, Hedgehogs and garden birds.
If you find amphibians and reptiles in your garden that you are concerned about, please have a look at our Frequently Asked Questions. We have suggestions and advice relating to many of the problems the animals can suffer from.
