FNSSA General Meeting – 7:45pm July 6th 2022

Location: Royal Society Rooms, South Australian Museum, Located behind the State Library of South Australian. Click here for a map

Speaker: Peter Matejcic

Topic: Update of the Cunningham Skink status in the Mount Lofty Ranges.

Peter will speak to further developments in defining and understanding Cunningham Skink (Egernia cunninghami) populations and the species’ current status in MLR.

There is still much to find out about this very interesting and elusive, threatened skink that prefers very particular types of rocky habitat, and forms an isolated sub-population in the Southern Mount Lofty Ranges, far from the nearest populations in the Great Dividing Range in Victoria.
