Two threatened skink species are thriving at Auckland Zoo.

The cobble and Kapitia species were rescued by the Department of Conservation before separate cyclones hit their homes in the wild.

Zoo staff have managed to grow the cobble skinks' population from 36 to 55 animals.

They have been caring for a quarter of the entire population of Kapitia or Chesterfield skinks to guard against their extinction, zoo staff say.

From 50 animals collected, 11 Chesterfield lizards have been born this year.

Auckland Zoo is working with the Department of Conservation to plan the next stage of the recovery for both species.

Ectotherm keeper Sarah weighs and measures the skinks to check on their growth.

Poll: Do we need more fast food outlets in New Zealand?

Suzy Neighbourly Lead from Mount Eden

With the news that Mark Wahlberg and his brothers have just signed a deal to bring 20 Wahlburgers to Australia and New Zealand (five to New Zealand), it begs the question; do we really need more unhealthy fast food outlets in New Zealand?

The most popular properties viewed by New Zealanders

Caryn Wilkinson Reporter from Community News

Jonah Lomu's mansion, an historic church in Franklin and a tiny cottage in Mt Eden have been recognised among the most popular property listings in 2020.

Trade Me spokesperson Millie Silvester said New Zealanders are keen property lovers and every year unique properties take top spots for the most viewed properties.

Jonah Lomu’s former Maupuia mansion was the site's most viewed property of 2020 with 196,000 views, Silvester said.

The five-bedroom Mediterranean-style house with expansive views of Wellington harbour has a rateable value of $2.4 million and is still listed onsite.

Silvester said the list wouldn’t be complete without a few multi-million dollar mansions too.

“Kiwis love to dream and each year we see thousands of views on some of the most expensive properties for sale in the country," she said.

A lavish inner-city mansion in the Wellington suburb of Thorndon clocked up 150,000 hits making it the second most viewed property of 2020.

"The home has an eye-watering asking price of $6.5 million and is still onsite.”

Another Wellington mansion took out the third spot with 148,000 views.

The five-story pad in Brooklyn has an asking price of almost $4 million and boasts an entire floor dedicated to an indoor swimming pool.

Fourth on the most viewed list is a 125-year-old church perched on Awhitu Peninsula in Franklin, which drew 117,771 views.

“The little church is surrounded by some pretty incredible natural scenery and looks out over the Tasman Sea - it’s really no wonder it was dubbed the most photogenic church in the country," Silvester said.

A tiny cottage in the middle of Mount Eden was fifth with 78,059 views.

The festive-looking green house with bright red windows has just one-bedroom and one-bathroom, and spans 51-square-metres.

Also making the cut is Owlcatraz, a native bird and wildlife park in Horowhenua- sixth with 74,300 views.

The 6.67 hectare property includes a four-bedroom home, its own lake and a glow worm cave.

Wellington’s air traffic control tower, Arnold, was seventh on the list and after 68,444 views, Arnold gained a new owner in October.

We’ve been dreaming of relaxing at this colourful retro Kāpiti bach which features in our January issue. It’s the perfect sanctuary for its Wellington owners, who find themselves unwinding as soon as they walk through its front gate. Where's your favourite place to unwind over the summer?
