2012 is the Year of the Lizard: DEEP plans to increase awareness of lizard conservation

Mar 29th, 2012 | By

2012 has been proclaimed the Year of the Lizard by Partners in Amphibian and Reptile Conservation (PARC) to raise awareness for lizard conservation. The Connecticut Department of Energy and Environmental Protection (DEEP), a member of PARC since 1999, is participating in this outreach effort by shining a spotlight on Connecticut’s only native lizard, the five-lined skink. Also found in Vermont and historically in Massachusetts, the five-lined skink is at its northeastern range limit in southwestern New England.
