We had a fantastic interview with Invercargill Mayor Tim Shadbolt a few weeks ago, but we wanted some more of the local perspective on tuatara-love. So we hit the streets of Invercargill, vox-popping anyone who would stop, give us a few minutes and a smile. However, although truly hospitable, it’s fair to say Southerners are a little camera-shy. After multiple failed attempts we were quickly losing hope (I think one lady thought we were making a porno), but a friendly young mum, an Irish dairy farmer and a smiling taxi driver saved the day. Roll those Rrrr’s Invercargillites – you’re our stars!
