Welcome to the website of Derbyshire Amphibian and Reptile Group


Our group aims to promote the study and conservation of the amphibians and reptiles of Derbyshire and their habitats. We achieve this by:

  • raising awareness of the ecology and conservation needs of Derbyshire's amphibians and reptiles
  • undertaking practical conservation projects
  • providing advice and information to the public
  • developing recording, monitoring and research intitatives
  • providing a forum for those interested in amphibians and reptiles
  • working in partnership with other relevant organisations

We always welcome new members of the group and we are very grateful for your records of amphibians and reptiles in your local area.

We hope our website will help you to find the information you are looking for, but if you still have a query, please contact us and we will do our best to help.
