Translated from Staatsbosbeheer in the Netherlands:

Sand lizard benefits from Terschelling dune restoration

Post published on Wednesday, March 14, 2012

At Arjensduin on Terschelling, hikers saw the first sand lizards of this spring. This is really special, as the Forestry Commission in 2009 felled the forest which grew on that dune as part of the LIFE dunes restoration project. That in this place sand lizards are found now is a sign that the new management is paying off.

The sand lizard is one of the two lizard species that live on Terschelling. The other kind is the more frequent common lizard.
