Join our ranger Jos for a wander through the dunes, hunting for reptiles and seeking out spots where snakes & lizards like to bask, all while finding out more about these amazing creatures and what you can do to help protect them.

The Woolacombe dunes are home to at least 4 of our 6 native species of reptile, and we’re undertaking some fantastic management work to improve their habitat.
