EVENING TELEGRAPH (Coventry, UK) 25 June 02 Hunt for county's newt colonies
Ponds around Nuneaton are to be studied to dis-cover if they are home to rare great crested newts.
Warwickshire Wildlife Trust has announced a project in partnership with Exel and Safeway to promote the conservation of ponds.
Two wildlife surveyors - Lyndsey Yates and Jon Easton - will spend four months visiting all the ponds in the area, thanks to funding from the two companies, which have a delivery depot on Prologis Park, in Keresley.
Great crested newts have full legal protection because of their rarity in Europe and have been identified as a priority species in the UK Biodiversity Action Plan.
The wildlife surveyors will try to discover where they are and what condition their breeding ponds are in so that they can target conservation action.
