ARG UK Reintroduction Guidelines for ARGs.docx

A number of our affiliated Amphibian and Reptile Groups have been approached with regard to reintroduction or genetic rescue of widespread species in their county. This has raised a number of questions, and we have drafted this guidance note to help them evaluate such proposals. We also recommend that before involvement in a local reintroduction scheme, additional guidance is sought from national NGOs and statutory agencies.

To engender this we commit to operating safely, with safeguarding as the top priority, and to act and be seen to act appropriately at all times.
