Parks Australia – Department of Sustainability, Environment, Water, Population and Communities
Mike Smith, the Natural Resource Manager for Christmas Island National Park, talking briefly about two threatened species of lizard - Lister's gecko and the blue-tailed skink.
Building on a captive breeding program which started on Christmas Island in 2009, Parks Australia has teamed up with Taronga Zoo in Sydney to establish ‘off-island’ populations of these lizards — insurance against any on-island disasters.
