Snakes and lizards can thrive in farmland if the right conditions are provided. Agri-environment schemes can help by supporting landowners in creating and managing reptile-friendly habitats. ARC's leaflet "Selecting Environmental Stewardship options to benefit reptiles" gives advice on the habitats reptiles need, and how the English schemes can help. Although focusing on England, the general messages in this leaflet are applicable across the UK. The schemes can be used to increase connectivity and provide specific habitats of value to reptiles.
