Reptiles and amphibian encounters have an amazing positive impact on SEND/SEMH children and adults

Important Figure

Sir David Attenborough has been at the forefront of global conservation for more than 60 years. As Britain’s most respected broadcaster and naturalist he is able to change people's perception about nature. My favourite quote of his is "Reptiles and amphibians are sometimes thought of as primitive, dull and dimwitted. In fact, of course, they can be lethally fast, spectacularly beautiful, surprisingly affectionate and very sophisticated."
