UK's rarest lizard to be tracked in the wild by radio tags

A group of Britain's rarest lizards are to be tracked using tiny radio tags as they are re-released into the wild by a Hampshire zoo.
A group of 24 sand lizards have been fitted with transmitters to track their movements and behaviour as they are reintroduced into the wild by Marwell Wildlife in Hampshire.
The tiny radio tags, which weigh just 0.29 grams, will help experts understand the lizards' behaviour as they are put into the wild at Eelmoor Marsh, a site of special scientific interest in Farnborough.
