Description

Monday 21st May 2018

14:00 – 16:00, Inspire Lecture Theatre, Fusion Building, Talbot Campus (buffet lunch provided at 13:00)

Amphibian & Reptile Conservation (ARC) are leading a brand-new project to conserve our rarest reptile – the smooth snake. Supported by a grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF), “Snakes in the Heather” aims to conserve this secretive creature throughout its range in Britain.

The project is currently in its design phase and ARC will submit a second-round HLF application in August in order to secure the project’s four year delivery from 2019 to 2023.
Snakes in the Heather will employ two Project Officers and aim to harmonise conservation efforts for the smooth snake (and all of our native reptile species) across the heaths of Southern England. We will achieve this by developing partnerships; volunteer-based wildlife survey and habitat management; research; and raising awareness of reptiles within local communities.

This workshop will provide a detailed overview of the project’s aims and objectives. This is an opportunity for our partners and stakeholders to influence the direction of the project by providing valuable feedback and discuss collaboration relation to their particular organisation and/or reserves.

There is limited parking at this event so please book a parking space if one is required.
