Welcome to the website of LEHART – the London Essex and Hertfordshire Amphibian and Reptile Trust.

About us :    

We are a Registered Charitable Trust whose aim is to promote the conservation of native species of amphibian and reptile (together called ‘herpetofauna’) in the three counties of London Essex and Hertfordshire.


What we do: To achieve the aims above we undertake surveys, record and monitor sites with herpetofauna, as well as manage their habitats including ponds and heathland.  We also advise and lobby local, regional and national bodies to reduce the threats to these animals, many of which are rare and legally protected. We don’t keep animals in captivity or breed non-native (exotic) species.

About the animals: See our sections on facts and photos for ID.
