2023 Pygmy Bluetongue Lizard Crawl
September 29, 2023

Following several cancelled attempts due to the COVID-19 pandemic and weather conditions, we were delighted to finally host our Pygmy Bluetongue Lizard Crawl earlier this week!

This community participation event harnessed the support of our members, who assisted with the preparation of survey plots across our 85-hectare Tiliqua Nature Reserve. Tiliqua is dedicated to protecting the Pygmy Bluetongue Lizard (Tiliqua adelaidensis), which was thought to be extinct until it was rediscovered near Burra in 1992.
