Whitireia Park Lizard monitoring - Looking for two keen people


Like Lizards and want to help monitor them? Whitireia Park Restoration Group carry out a lizard survey each year in summer. The focus, until now, has been on finding new species. Over 2015 we established an intensive rodent (mouse and rat) control program so we are now also looking to understand how lizard populations respond to this. We use pitfall traps and ACOs for our monitoring. We will be monitoring over six days covering two weekends (12th, 13th,14th Feb and 19th, 20th, 21st Feb). Each monitoring run takes 1-2 hours. We work in pairs. If you interested send me an email: [email protected] or 021 1815220
