Think Grass Snake launches

Welcome to our new website, dedicated to the conservation of Jersey's grass snakes. Our field researcher Rob has been surveying in Jersey tirelessly since March looking for these locally rare and wonderful creatures. There is a lot of work involved in setting up a study like this, but with only one man on the ground looking for snakes, there is no way the whole island can be studied. The "Think Grass Snake" campaign has been designed to find out what everyone else in the island has seen by getting them to call our snake Spotline with their sightings, or do what you have hopefully just done and recorded them on this website. By doing this, we can build a better picture of where these snakes are living, how many there might be, and what we can do to make sure a healthy population continues to live in the island.
