Saving the Tuatara: Habitat Restoration on Stephens Island, New Zealand

The tuatara, a prehistoric reptile from New Zealand, often called a "living fossil," is making a comeback. Long extinct from the mainland and now only found on a few islands, the Ttuatara is getting help. In this presentation we go to Stephens Island, New Zealand to take part in a 10-day revegetation project aimed at providing tuataras with an ideal habitat for the future. Stephens Island is home to over half of the world's tuatara population. It is an amazing island, fitting for an amazing creature.
