From Afternoons with Jesse Mulligan, 1:35 pm on 9 June 2020

Lindsay Hazley, the tuatara curator at the Southland Museum and Art Gallery, and Henry the tuatara have marked fifty years of companionship. It all began when schoolboy Lyndsay started as a  volunteer at the museum  in 1972 and discovered that 55 year old Henry had arrived two years earlier from Stephens Island.
