The Amphibian and Reptile Group of South Lancashire (ARGSL) on behalf of ARG UK and with support from Manchester Museumare delighted to be able to invite you to our one day regional meeting which is to be held at The Manchester Museum, Oxford Road, Manchester, M13 9PL, on Saturday 19 November 2016, starting at at 10:00 AM.

The meeting covers both regional and national projects, and features some of the latest research on reptiles and amphibians with a prestigious and varied speaker panel including: Dr Robert Jehle, David Orchard and Samantha Hook (University of Salford), Dr Trent Garner (Institute of Zoology), Jim Foster (ARC Trust), Donal Smith, Joe Reynolds (University of Gloucestershire), Rick Parker (Bolton Conservation Volunteers), and John Newton (Yorkshire and North Merseyside ARGs). The focus of the meeting will be the amphibian and reptile species of the north west of England, including great crested newts. We will also hear more about some of the most critical amphibian diseases in the UK including rana virus and chytrid; as well as how reptiles colonise industrial landscapes; and an update from ARC on an exciting new project, 'Gems in the Dunes' which aims to conserve some of the most important, but endangered, species from the unique habitats found on the Sefton Coast, notably the natterjack toad and the rare northern dune race sand lizard.

Early booking is recommended for this meeting and the registration fee of £15 for ARG members includes tea/coffee on arrival and a light lunch.
