Gems in the Dunes

Gems in the Dunes is an exciting new project led by Amphibian and Reptile Conservation under the wider HLF-funded ‘Back from the Brink’ partnership programme. The aim of the programme is to bring 20 key species back from the brink of extinction and improve the fortunes of a further 200 plants and animals found here in the UK.
