LARA: the Lancashire Amphibian and Reptile Atlas Project.

Our main objective is to produce the first amphibian and reptile atlas for the vice counties of South and West Lancashire, an area now covered by Lancashire, Greater Manchester and Merseyside.

The aims of LARA:

To support and encourage the recording of amphibians and reptiles in Lancashire, Greater Manchester and Merseyside.

To promote recording in areas that are currently under-recorded, such as north and east Lancashire.

To provide a resource to support the conservation of amphibians and reptiles in Lancashire, Greater Manchester and Merseyside.

To actively collect data that is otherwise unavailable for conservation purposes (for example records that remains in surveyors notebooks).

To bring together existing data to enable a better understanding of species distribution in the vice counties of South and West Lancashire.  

 

This project has been funded by OPAL, The Open Air Laboratories Network
