Welcome to the Green Lizard Project!

Jersey is the only place in the British Isles with a native population of green lizards but they are increasingly under threat. Use this website to find out more about these reptiles and how you can get involved in protecting them.

The Jersey Amphibian and Reptile Group (JARG) promotes the conservation of the Island's green lizard population to ensure they remain a permanent feature of Jersey's coastal areas.

JARG was originally formed in 1993 formerly known as the Agile Frog Group was re-named in 2007 to JARG. The group's aims are to:

  • Conserve through study and direct action, the native reptiles and amphibians of Jersey.

  • Collect and collate herpetofauna records.

  • Provide general advice on native reptiles and amphibians and their habitat management.

  • Raise awareness amongst the general public.

Amphibians and reptiles suffer from a poor public image feared by some people and simply misunderstood by many others. It is important to encourage public appreciation and awareness of amphibians and reptiles by providing the opportunity for people to become involved in wildlife recording and conservation.

Thanks to everyone who has provided sightings. Keep up the good work and keep us posted.
