Off the beaten path – Week 3 – 2020

I was privileged to go deep into the Zealandia wildlife sanctuary at night as part of a survey team doing a population count of the Ngahere Gecko.

We didn’t find any geckos in the surveyed part of the sanctuary – disappointing, but useful information – but we did see plenty of Wellington Tree Weta.

I have been out of town without some of my gear, so the photo is from my library (early 2019), but most photos I post for the challenge will be current.
