National Amphibian & Reptile Recording Scheme

Welcome to the National Amphibian and Reptile Recording Scheme (NARRS) homepage!

On these pages you can find information about surveys to monitor the status and distribution of ALL the UK’s reptiles and amphibians.
 
The NARRS scheme brings existing surveys for our rarer species together with volunteer-based surveys to collect data on more widespread amphibians and reptiles. There is growing concern that even our widespread species are in national decline.
 
Use the links on the left to find out more about the different types of survey then, if you decide to take part, you can use the links on the right to find materials, survey forms and other resources to help you conduct your survey!

 
The National Amphibian and Reptile Recording Scheme (NARRS) widespread amphibian and reptile surveys began in 2007 and have already generated lots of information. The first aim of the scheme is to have collected data from over 400 amphibian surveys and 400 reptile surveys within the first six years (by 2012). This will create a baseline from which any future trends in status and distribution can be measured. To see some of the results so far, click here.


We are extremely grateful for all the help we have received in previous years, and we look forward to an even greater success in the future. If you want to take part, simply sign up here. We will get back to you in due course.

It is never too late to submit results (online or paper copy), but the sooner after your survey the better. The easiest way to submit your widespread species results is to use the online forms available here. You can also send us copies of your paper forms if you prefer (available here)

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.
