We need your help!

To update our members' magazine, currently called HopGossip, to make it fit better with our new improved members scheme, we are looking for a light-hearted new name. Who better to help find a new name than our ARC Members!

We are looking for a play on words: the combination of reptiles, amphibians, our organisation, and news is not an easy one to fit together in a short, catchy title! A species common name or scientific name; something related to a physical property of herps or their habitats or something related to herp conservation activity or apparatus could all work well. We are trying to avoid something bland like ARC NEWS.

Some current suggestions that may encourage better alternatives:

  • Reflections
  • Scaling up
  • Snakes n Adders
  • Toadally Herps
  • Ribbiting On
  • Hop On It
  • Newt News
  • Ponderings
  • Dragon Times
  • Herp Life
  • Herp World​​​​​​​

If you have any suggestions please let us know by emailing [email protected] by Friday 24th June!
