The Kent Reptile and Amphibian Group database now holds over 30,000 records. The records are being used to identify important herpetofauna sites across the county. Over the past year, KRAG has used the database to help it identify and designate several Key Amphibian and Reptile Sites.

KRAG are also able to undertake Reptile and Amphibian database search requests for those organisations and individuals who need access to this important information. Although a small charge is applied to each search, all proceeds go directly to KRAG and help to cover the group's running costs. Any surplus funds are channelled directly into KRAG's conservation activities.

A standard search encompasses a 9 km square. This includes the 1 km square within which a grid reference is specified, together with the eight surrounding squares.

The KRAG database provides the following information:

  • Summary of Available Records
  • List of All Records within Search Area (including distances and directions)
  • Summary of Key Sites (as appropriate)

Database search fees are modest. Standard fees are £60. Conservation Partners and educational organisations are able to request searches completely free of charge. Searches are also free to all Corporate Members that actively support the database through the submission of records.

If you have a more complicated search request (e.g. records from a wide area, or along a road or pipeline), please email KRAG to request an estimate.

Please note that requests will be processed within 14 days (often much more quickly) so please do not follow up requests before 14 days has elapsed.

Payment terms

An invoice will be sent after a search has been requested that must be paid within 30 days of receipt.  Database searches can only be paid by bank transfer or by cheque.  KRAG do not accept card payment.
