Native Skink Is Extirpated from the Hawaiian Islands
A species of lizard native to the Hawaiian Islands, the Copper-striped Blue-tailed Skink (Emoia impar), is now officially extinct in the Hawaiian Islands. The species was once common throughout the Hawaiian Islands and is still found on other island groups in the tropical Pacific. The last sighting was in the Na’Pali coast of Kauai in the 1960s. But repeated field surveys on Kauai, Oahu, Maui and Hawai’i islands from 1988 to 2008 have yielded no sightings or specimens
