Our elite climbing lizard (Clizarding) rescue division have been busy again. This time to the cliffs above the Sumner/Lyttleton road.
The team spent weeks ‘winkling & weedling’ out over 200 geckos and carefully handing them back to Marieke the lizard expert. Catching these wee beasties is harder than you think. Patience, a keen nose and a third eye are needed as well as an array of top secret devices designed for enticing them out of deep dark bottomless crevices.
All have been released into a predator free environment to enjoy their later years stress free. All except a select 20 which now sport the latest in radio transmitters to enable track and trace and monitoring.
We even made it onto national news: http://m.tvnz.co.nz/video/nz_news/ref:6259621
