Garden Dragon Watch is ARC’s garden herpetofauna (reptile and amphibian) survey. Gardens can provide important habitats for reptiles and amphibians. We want to find out more about the reptiles and amphibians that people find in their gardens and how many gardens have the habitat that benefits them. Are gardens in some parts of the UK especially rich in amphibians and reptiles?

By taking part, you can help us gather the information that will inform our conservation work and the advice that we give that helps amphibians and reptiles. Exploring your garden to learn more about the wildlife that lives there is fun and you don’t need a lot of time to do our survey.
