Protecting native lizards, Kāpiti coast

Ngā Uruora Kāpiti Project is a community-based conservation project. Their aim is to create bird-safe native forest running from Pukerua Bay to Paekākāriki, but also to increase the population of native lizards.

The lizards are protected through pest trapping, the continuous planting of lizard-friendly plants, and specially designed lizard gardens where they can hide.
