Discovering Reptiles is Froglife’s new National Lottery Heritage funded project, focusing on inspiring people about our native widespread reptiles and increasing public engagement through Froglife’s free Dragon Finder App.
Through workshops, both online and in person, we aim to enhance participants’ knowledge and understanding of reptile identification, ecology and survey techniques and to encourage people to visit local public green spaces to survey for reptiles. We will collate feedback from training sessions and collate records of reptiles that people submit on our Dragon Finder app.
We also work with landowners and park management staff to enhance the knowledge and understanding of reptiles as well as provide training on effective habitat management. The aim is to provide landowners, staff and volunteers with the skills to manage their parks for reptiles and also carry out surveys and collect data.
