Adders are one of the "widespread" UK species we are most concerned about.
The species was found in just 7% of reptile surveys in the first three
years of NARRS - see the report
here . NARRS
widespread reptile surveys will help us monitor changes in distribution
and occupancy rate for the adder in the UK, but we think more research
is needed to help us target efforts for their conservation.
To report adders you've seen or places where you used to see adders,
visit our Add an Adder survey
page. Both historic and contemporary information will help us examine
what has changed for adders in recent years.
If you'd like to get involved in regular monitoring of adder
populations, consider taking part in
Adder Count. This project aims to provide data with which to monitor
population trends and to strengthen the case for better conservation and
protection. If you regularly see adders after their springtime
emergence, you could help provide this important information.
NARRS is led by Amphibian and Reptile Conservation (ARC) in partnership with ARG UK and many other partners.
Through volunteer-based surveys, we aim to monitor the conservation status of all UK amphibian and reptile
species. Click on the buttons or links to each side for more information.
