Wellington Regional Lizard Network

The Wellington Regional Lizard Network (WRLN) comprises conservation managers and lizard specialists from a variety of groups and organisations in the region who aim to identify priorities for lizard conservation throughout the Wellington region. The group promotes lizard conservation and provides advice and training to those involve in lizard conservation. The group's primary role is to advise but it will actively identify work that needs to be done, promote this work and train people to do it, and facilitate its implementation when possible.

Supporters of Tiritiri Matangi Inc

Tiritiri Matangi Island (commonly referred to as "Tiri") is a wildlife sanctuary, and one of New Zealand's most important and exciting conservation projects. It is located 30km north east of central Auckland and just 4km from the end of the Whangaparaoa Peninsula. 120 years of farming had seen this 220-hectare island stripped of 94% of its native bush but between 1984 and 1994, volunteers planted between 250,000 and 300,000 trees. The island is now 60% forested with the remaining 40% left as grassland for species preferring open habitat.
