Reptiles are roaming...

…thanks to you! Our reptile appeal reached its target of £13,610 with Gift Aid.

With this funding, we have been able to continue our habitat improvement work at our grassland and heathland reserves.

We have successfully trained our volunteer botanical surveyors to monitor our heathland reserves; held work parties to create open, light areas for sun-loving reptiles, as well as encourage heather regeneration and other heathland flowers; placed more reptile mats to provide safe, warm refuges on our sites, and continued our work with partners and landowners to appropriately manage and protect our local grasslands and heaths.

All of which will make a huge difference to our local wildlife and help keep reptiles roaming across the two counties – all because of your continued support. Thank you once again.
