It’s an important summer for skinks.

Manitoba’s only native lizard – one of just six lizard species found in perilously cold Canada – is endangered, threatened by the march of invasive plants and the loss of habitat to more profitable agriculture in its realm near Carberry, Man.But this summer could be a critical moment in the skink’s survival. Forces are mobilizing on two fronts in southern Manitoba to save the small, fleet-footed lizards. A Save Our Skinks (S.O.S.) campaign, based in Winnipeg, aims to turn Carberry-area residents into a legion of skink stewards, while at Brandon University, researchers are readying new ways to probe skink survival – first of all, by finding out how the critters have survived here for so long.
