The Froglife Trust
Froglife is a national wildlife charity committed to the conservation of amphibians and reptiles - frogs, toads, newts, snakes and lizards - and saving the habitats they depend on. We want all audiences to appreciate and learn more about amphibians and reptiles, and how to conserve them...
Froglifes work is made up of three main strands:
- On the ground conservation: this includes building ponds (particularly in urban areas), coordinating the national Toads on Roads project and managing a nature reserve home to Europes largest colony of great crested newts!
- Environmental education: we specialise in working with socially excluded and hard to reach youth groups. This means that our education team works closely with a range of education providers, from the traditional (schools) to more non-traditional education providers, such as community groups, special schools and non-wildlife sector organisations like the YMCA.
- Providing advice: our Wildlife Information Service receives thousands of calls and emails every year regarding amphibians and reptiles in gardens and Froglife has become a central voice for public advice. We rely on donations from the public to help our important work continue.
