: THE TELEGRAPH (London, UK) 26 January 00 Rare reptile
: New Zealand's Department of Conservation is asking people in the Wellington region to help catch green geckos for transfer to Mana Island, a predator-free enviroment. They hope to find 15 of each sex to ensure the animal's survival

yes- a fine specimen of Naultinus elegans punctatus! NZ's reptiles are seriously threatened by increased predators and habitat loss due to cutting and global warming.A recent bit of bad news concerns stewart island which is now known to have stoats which could threaten possibly the worls most spectacularly patterned gecko Hoplodactylus rakiurae.This is the 2nd most southerly gecko in the world I believe.note that ALL NZ reptiles are absolutely protected! Many NZ geckos offered overseas
are smuggled!
