October 2020: The lizards have emerged from their winter semi-hibernation, and are back out and about at the Sanctuary, enjoying the springtime sun and milder temperatures. 

 

Volunteers have been out monitoring the grand and Otago skinks. Already this season they've sighted five more of the Otago skinks from the founding population, meaning that two thirds of the founders have now been sighted since release, encouraging news. 

 

A couple of new babies have also been seen, bringing the total newborns sighted to five Otago and five grand skinks. 

Recent happenings:

A baby Otago skink, Oo10, born in late summer 2020 and re-sighted this September. It's great to see evidence of the newborns surviving the winter.
