The Gift of Geckos

The Gift of Geckos

The Rotokare Environmental Education programme finally welcomed 12 geckos on site as part of our captive lizard project. 

These animals are going to be an invaluable advocacy tool for lizard conservation at Rotokare, and beyond.  We look forward to sharing them with visiting groups, and have great lizard specific activities ready to go for school groups to utilise. 

This project wouldn't have been made possible without a huge anount of time, money and advice from many different people.

For more information about NZ lizards visit the Herpetelogical Society of NZ's website ( and get in touch with us to book a school or other group visit to meet our geckos.
