ReWild Benefits

Like most gecko species, the Marbled Geckos help control pests (including roaches) and benefit our neighbourhoods by contributing to a healthy environment for our community. If you explore your garden during the night with a torch (called spotlighting) you might see one and you can record your sighting on Atlas of Living Australia!
