Adders in Decline

KRAG has been concerned about the future of the adder for some years now and we are not alone in our concern.  The Zoological Society of London's study of genetic diversity within adder populations has received significant publicity this year and let's hope that this leads to what we all know really needs to happen which is sympathetic management of adder habitat with good habitat links between these populations.  We can always live in hope.  Thanks to Steff Buell for bringing this link to a Natural England press release about the study.
