Think Grass Snake

A message from Sam Napaul: 

I'm a JICAS masters student, working with the natural environment department, carrying out a small radio-tracking project on jerseys grass snakes. The aim of the project is to monitor the habitats the snakes use by tracking their ranges and daily habits. I have obtained all the licensing required, but now i need your help!

If you find a grass snake, please contact me directly on 07748595527.

Reptile Watch. Je

Jersey has four native reptile species, some of which are rarely seen and are limited to certain habitats. Reptilewatch JE is a new project that aims to gather sightings of Jersey’s four native reptile species to help assess their conservation status, distribution and habitat requirements.

How can you help?

Reptile guide for Jersey

We have four species of reptiles on Jersey - Slow Worms, Grass Snake, Wall Lizards and Green Lizards.

With the sunny weather, temperatures rising and the arrival of spring there have been more and more reptile records coming in through the Jersey Biodiversity Centre Facebook page, Jersey Wildlife and through our online recording form.

It's surprising on such a small island that you are never too far away from spotting a reptile. Whether you have never seen one before or are a regular lizard spotter the feeling of seeing them close to home is stunning.
