REPTILES & AMPHIBIANS

County Recorder: John Baker
A survey was run by Mark Jones, whilst based at SBRC between 1983 and 1986. SWT commissioned A Conservation Strategy for Reptiles and Amphibians in Suffolk from Herpetofauna International (T. Langton) in 1990. All recent (post-1980) records have been logged on RECORDER and are kept updated. There are currently over 13,900 records on the SBIS Database.
The Suffolk Amphibian and Reptile Group was launched in 1996 with the aim of species recording, site initiatives and landowner contact. Further information on National recording schemes can be found on the National Amphibian and Reptile Recording Scheme (NARRS) website.

There are over 7200 records of Amphibians on the SBIS database
