NZ's largest lizard species has been reintroduced to the Bay of Islands by Project Island Song. Duvaucel's geckos can grow up to 30cm, and it is thought they can live 50 to 70 years. Endemic to NZ they were once prolific on the North Island mainland before the introduction of pest mammals, but are now sadly extinct except for a few wildlife sanctuaries like Project Island Song. The rainy summer may be dampening the spirits of our visiting tourists but it’s great weather for geckos.

Thanks for all the support to help make this happen Explore - Bay of Islands, NorthTec, Barefoot Sailing Adventures, Albatross 5 #gogeckoteam

After a few weather delays we're now on our way to Mauimua to collect Duvaucel's geckos, our first reptile reintroduction for Project Island Song. Still a bit of swell, but the view is spectacular #gogeckoteam

Fantastic news Tiritiri Matangi Island!

Great news. The rat has been trapped and killed. Sometime overnight it entered a specially modified tracking tunnel and was killed instantly. It was found by De...partment of Conservation staff at 6am this morning. All thanks to the sterling efforts of DOC staff, and volunteers from DOC and Supporters of Tiritiri Matangi.

Merry Christmas and a happy and safe holiday season to all our supporters and friends, from the Project Island Song team. It’s been a stellar year in which we have achieved a lot, with many more plants in the ground, weeds weeded, and of course the kakariki reintroduction in June.

And we have yet another reintroduction, very different and very exciting, in the final planning stages; but more of that in the New Year.

So thanks again to you all, have fun and enjoy our wonderful outdoors in what promises to be a cracking summer. See you all on the islands.

Very swanky kakariki nesting boxes were put up across the islands over the weekend. The kakariki were reintroduced to the Bay of Islands in June and have started nesting. We hope to see some island hatched fledglings soon.

We think as more island raised kakariki start to nest they might start using the boxes.

Who is this little cutie going to grow into?
Thanks Darren Markin for the photo (and Darren you can not answer the question either )
