Durrell field programme
Durrell Wildlife Park
Nearly 40 years of captive breeding, intense habitat restoration and successful translocations has led to such a major recovery of the Telfair's skink that this species now supports the conservation of other Critically Endangered Mauritian reptiles.
The rarest species are often the less well known, but our species profiles are here to give you easy access to the key facts and photos. Click for a snapshot of the Telfair's skink
Our timelines tell the story behind the species and our programmes: from Durrell's first involvement through to our consevation activities today and the differences we have made on the ground. Click for the full story of the Telfair's skink
