DOC and Wellington City Council are running a series of free workshops that will introduce you to lizard conservation and equip you with the skills to support lizard survey work in the Kapiti - Wellington region.
There will be an introductory evening talk covering the field. Everyone is welcome to attend. Two field based workshops will follow covering lizard monitoring techniques, capture, handling, measurement etc. These will be delivered by qualified herpetologists from EcoGecko Consultants.
The field workshops are restricted to 10 participants each and we are looking for people who can commit to supporting lizard surveys in Porirua, Kapiti and Wellington over 2017. A lizard survey might involve a commitment of 2-3 hrs per day over a 5-day period (sometimes spread over two weekends).
Further workshops will be run if the demand is there. If you miss out on this round there will be others.

NOTE: Participants must attend the introduction before registering for the field-based workshop, workshop 1 and workshop 2

To book contact Amy Brasch on [email protected] or 04 4708434
RSVP and indicate whether you would like to attend just the introductory talk or the introductory talk and a workshop
