- Departure time:
83% of New Zealand’s 100+ endemic lizard species are threatened with extinction. This is largely attributed to the loss and degradation of a large proportion of our native ecosystems. Furthermore, the introduction of exotic mammals to New Zealand has further deteriorated the lizard-supporting capacity of at least some, if not all, remaining lizard habitats through marked increases in predation and competition pressure.
Help us to improve lizard habitat by building rock piles in an area that was recently planted up with lizard-specific native shrubs. We will also be releasing these young plants from weeds.
What to wear/bring: sturdy boots essential, long sleeves and pants and a hat. Bring a water bottle and some lunch.
What we provide: gloves, tools, an experienced team leader, free transport (if required) to and from the project. Get in touch to book a pick-up, seats are limited!
So join us for a day of lizard conservation in this stunning coastal site! Please note sightings of lizards are not guarenteed.
