Reptile and amphibian surveys are well underway here at Froglife. If you would like to learn how to survey for these fabulous creatures, please take a look at our events page here to find a survey training course near you.
If you would like to volunteer with Froglife, whether that be out in the field or at our offices, please get in contact with us! For some more information click here.
Remember to record your amphibian and reptile sightings on our Dragon Finder app.
- Remember to support our colleague Ash and her team mates as they take on their 25 mile walk for Froglife at Rutland Water on 26th May. Donate here.
- Froglife will be at PCVS’s ‘Volunteer Match’ on 6th June at Peterborough Town Hall. This is your opportunity to meet over 20 charities to explore volunteering options. More information here.
- ARG UK, with support from Froglife, have published their advice note on Reptile Survey and Mitigation Guidance for Peatland Habitats. Take a look here. If you would like to read more of Froglife’s reports and research, click here.
- Our Science & Research Manager, Laurence Jarvis, has recently collated 30 years of toad patrol data. The data shows an increase in the number of patrols over time along with an increase in the number of toads helped. This data reflects volunteer effort, which shows the success of the Toads on Roads project at helping more toads over time. Take a look at the stats here.
If you see dead amphibians or reptiles this year in your garden please register with the Garden Wildlife Health Project and help increase our knowledge of wildlife diseases in Britain.
Our latest Annual Review can be found here. As you can see, we are a rapidly growing charity, with some wonderful projects funded mainly through grant making trusts. With most funders covering 60-90% of the costs of a project and generally funding us in arrears (we have to spend the money first, then claim it back), we are still very much in need of your support to continue our work to help protect reptiles and amphibians.
Our app is available to download so that you can enter your sightings.
