The natterjack toads targeted survey was set up by Living Record ( for ARC primarily to survey natterjack toad breeding activity around the Irish Sea, from Cumbria to Anglesea. Now in its third year ARC want to ensure that monitoring efforts continue, and that the number of monitors getting out and completing targets surveys for natterjack toads can grow.

Spawn and toadlet production is monitored at natterjack toad sites every year. If you live in an area with natterjack toads and would like to help with targeted monitoring or if you would like to receive emails letting you know when volunteering opportunities become available, please contact ARC's Amphibian Conservation Officer, Yvette Martin via [email protected]

ARC can also offer a variety of training packages, from species identification to tips in setting up and using Living Record.
