Northern Prairie Skink

Why We Need Them
Out of all the other animals the Northern Prairie Skink needs the most attention. It is a lizard like species. It would be nice to see some around Iowa. It would be a good tourist attraction. Iowa is not known for lizards so it would add quite a bit of diversity to the area.
How We Can Help Them
First would be habitat. We need to start planting prairie grass in sandy areas. These preserves should be away from cities and protected. If they start off fine then we need to let them be but we should observe. If there is a drop in population we should hunt and trap its predator and if there is an exponential growth we should introduce more predators to the areas.
