Recording Herpetofauna

KRAG endeavours to record the distribution and monitor the status of herpetofauna in the county. We want to build up long-term records for key sites in Kent  in an attempt to safeguard them from development or mismanagement.We also welcome records of sightings from members of public.

Information and Advice

We provide general advice on reptiles and amphibians and their habitat management to conservation organisations and the general public.

Corporate Services

KRAG also provides a database search facility for ecological consultants, local authorities, educational establishments, conservation organisations and private individuals. Professionals can also become corporate members of KRAG.

Raising Awareness

Public events include rambles led by experienced recorders, practical habitat conservation days and popular survey training sessions. We produce a twice yearly newsletter for members.

Reptiles and amphibians are under threat in Kent, as in the rest of the United Kingdom, from development, persecution and general loss of habitat. Could you become an active member of KRAG and help them?
