Predation is a major cause of population declines and extinctions world-wide (Omerod, ).Predator impacts are typically catastrophic when exotic species are introduced to naïve prey that lack successful strategies for coexistence (Salo et al., ).Consequently, conservation management in areas with exotic predators is dominated by the need to reduce predator impacts.

This is the third recovery plan for North Island skinks in Oligosoma. The first plan, for the chevron skink, Oligosoma homalonotum, was a 5-year plan approved in (Towns & McFadden ) and subsequently extended to February The second plan was developed for the striped skink for 5 years to February (Whitaker ).
