Amphibian & Reptile Conservation is a national wildlife charity. Our work includes both practical land management and influencing policy outcomes through advocacy and through practical engagement. Working alongside Freshwater Habitats Trust, we have helped steer the design of local licensing schemes for great crested newts, and work closely with an independent, not for profit organisation, the Newt Conservation Partnership, to see that high quality habitats are created and maintained in a number of countries in England. As the scheme is expanding in the SE of England we are now recruiting a South East Project Officer.
