Guidance for UK amphibian fieldworkers

We are delighted to announce the launch of the newly revised ARG UK "Advice note 4 - Amphibian Disease Precautions, A Guide for UK Fieldworkers", which is published in March 2017. This important resource for amphibian fieldworkers and trainers has been comprehensively revised by Amphibian and Reptile Groups of the UK (ARG UK) in partnership with Amphibian and Reptile Conservation and the Institute of Zoology, in the light of new disease risks that may be facing amphibians in the UK; notably the new forms of ranavirus and chytrid "B. salamandrivorans", which have been identified on continental Europe.
