Critter of the Week Te Kakahu skink

From Jesse Mulligan, 1–4pm, 3:26 pm on 23 February 2018

We often showcase a critter that lives in only one place on the planet and the Te Kakahu skink is no exception: 50 square metres of cliff on a tiny island in Fiordland.

DOC’s Threatened Species Ambassador, Nicola Toki tells us about efforts to give this precious skink a safe future.
