Leicestershire County Council's Community Heritage Initiative, supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund and Rutland County Council is encouraging the public to become reptile recorders by getting involved with an on-going countywide survey 'Snakes Alive.'
There is an interesting article about this here.
Maybe we could encourage Sussex, East and West, to set up Community Heritage Initiatives for recording reptiles and amphibians. Interesting to see too that Rutland is supporting Leicestershire. Maybe we could get Surrey to help us.
