WART is a voluntary group that works in partnership with the Warwickshire
Wildlife Trust (WWT) and is affiliated to the Amphibian and Reptile Groups of
the UK (ARG UK).
Records of amphibians and reptiles are mainly collected throughout
Warwickshire, Coventry and Solihull and shared with the Warwickshire
Biological Records Centre (WBRC) but the aim of WART is to cover the wider
Vice County 38, including the surrounding area of Sutton Coldfield which is
found within the administrative area of Birmingham.
WART members carry out amphibian and reptile surveys, create and maintain amphibian and reptile
habitat including the WART reserve in Kenilworth Common, participate in public events (e.g. Coventry
Godiva Festival), rescue amphibians in roads and drains during the breeding and post-breeding sea-
sons and install amphibian ladders in road drains.
