Things are in full swing at the sanctuary as the weather continues to warm. Last month Joel Knight and Matt Forbes from Wellington Zoo spent ten days helping survey the lizard population in the sanctuary, their efforts supported by the Wellington Zoo's Conservation Fund. You can read more about their time here: Lizards thrive in Central Sanctuary.
Carey Knox from Southern Scales also recently spent time at Mokomoko Dryland Sanctuary, and along with his lizard work he carried out a moth survey, finding 46 different moth species inside the sanctuary!
