Amphibian and Reptile Groups of UK (ARG UK) and Amphibian and Reptile Conservation (ARC) are proud to be able to announce the first national adder meeting.  The meeting will address all aspects of adder conservation including:

  • Strategic challenges and solutions for adder conservation

  • Insights from survey and research

  • Managing landscapes sympathetically for adders: opportunities and challenges for land managers

  • Public interactions with adders – what messages should we be broadcasting?

  • Site protection, regulation and policy issues

  • Mitigating development impacts 

  • Prioritisation of threats and conservation actions for the adder

We will be hearing from a range of adder specialists including: Jim Foster (ARC), Steve Langham (SARG), Nigel Hand (HART), Richard Griffiths (DICE), Tony Gent (ARC), Rick Hodges (KRAG), Pete Hill & Mark Barber (ARC), Trent Garner (IoZ), Paul Edgar (NE), Liz Howe (NRW), Lee Brady (KRAG),  John Baker (Suffolk ARG), John Dickson (RAGS), Chris Cathrine (Caledonian Conservation), Chris Monk (DARG), Jon Cranfield (Herpetologic Ltd), Darryn Nash (DICE), Gary Powell (ARC), Chris Gleed-Owen (CGO Ecology), Mike Phillips (KRAG), Alex Cruickshank (BBOWT), Stephen Corcoran (Cairngorms National Park), Iain Porter (The Quantock Hills AONB)

There will be an opportunity to join us on Saturday night at the venue for a special Curry Extravaganza, the perfect opportunity to network and socialise further. So don't forget to get your ticket for that as well.

We will also be having a poster session throughout the conference to further showcase adder research and survey findings. If you would like to present your work please do contact us on info@arguk.org.
