SW Regional Amphibian & Reptile Groups’ Meeting – 3rd March 2013

This year’s South West Regional Amphibian and Reptile Groups’ Meeting takes place on Sunday 3rd March at Cornwall College Newquay.

It is being jointly organised by CRAG (Cornwall Reptile and Amphibian Group) and the Student Invasive Non-Native Group (SINNG) from Cornwall College Newquay.

As ever, there will be a lively mix of presentations on local, national and global issues. It will also be an important opportunity to network and share information.

We are very grateful to the event’s sponsors: Herpetologic Ltd, CGO Ecology Ltd and the College itself.

Please direct enquiries to Pete Mycock at newtpete@hotmail.co.uk.
