South East Regional meeting latest news

Reporting from the actual meeting today Saturday 17th Nov. So far we have had talks on reptile mitigation and guidance from Chris gleed-Owen and a rather entertaining talk from Jim Foster from Amphibian and Reptile Conservation. 

Going through the England Biodiversity Strategy with Paul Edgar from Natural England. 

Wow wow latest developments on great crested newt future strategies which will take money for conservation rather than spend millions on mitigation. 

How will this work with widespread reptiles work?

Now onto John Buckley (Chris Packhams teacher) looking at the reintroduction of the Pool Frog into Norfolk the seventh English amphibian species and the rarest in the UK. History, research, and an update on what has happened and a talk which was presented at the World Congress of Herpetology in Vancouver, this year. 

Up next would be Martin Noble and sand lizard captive breeding part of one of the most successful reintroduction projects in the UK if not the world! 

Almost lunchtime back later with pictures from the natterjack and sand lizard enclosures. sadly the enclosures are being refurbished so no tour of the enclosures boo! 

The next talk is going to be interesting smooth snakes, new forest and burning...
