PATRICK WISNIEWSKI (1954-2008) was an all round natural historian and the
longest serving curator of Martin Mere in Lancashire, one of the nine UK Wildfowl & Wetland Trusts centres. He
was “the newt man’s newt man,” said to be ahead of his time in amphibian husbandry. He kept and bred a great range
of amphibians, especially newts and salamanders—mainly European and Asian species. A vast collection of captive
animals covered every inch of several rooms and part of the garden. Pat wrote the booklet “Newts of the British
Isles” published in 1989.
