Back in 1995, Lindsay Hazley contacted us from the Southland Museum & Art Gallery in New Zealand. They are the world’s leading captive centre for Tuataras, starting with its first breeding success in 1984. The Tuatara is endemic to New Zealand surviving on 32 offshore islands. From the order Sphenodontia, Tuatara have continued to survive here since New Zealand separated from Gondwanaland, some 80 million years ago.
See how the purchase of a Skye DataHog logger and UVA & UVB sensors helped to reduce egg mortality among the Tutara’s.
