As the UK’s only venomous snake adders are often misunderstood. ARC has teamed up with television presenters, and ARC patrons, Chris Packham and Iolo Williams to create a new fun and informative animated adder guide to help tell the real story of this elusive and endangered reptile.
The adder is facing severe challenges in Britain, it is already thought to have gone extinct in some counties of England and is declining rapidly in Wales and Scotland. ARC is working locally and nationally, and in conjunction with partners, to try to turn around these declines. Please help us to save the adder by learning how to stay safe, helping others to understand why adders should be protected and by sending in your adder records to the Record Pool.
In ARC’s Adder Guide, Adam the Adder (voiced by Iolo) tells us some Awesome Adder Facts, when and where you might see an adder and Top Tips to keep people, pets and adders safe. Remember. Keep calm, no harm and #ThinkZigzag!
