16-02-2010 - Jamaican Iguana
The Jamaican iguana, Cyclura collei, is represented by a single population in the wild that had near zero recruitment when it was discovered in 1991. A "headstart" program, where hatchlings are collected in the wild and reared in captivity until they are large enough to fend for themselves, has reversed this trend. However, headstarting may have unforeseen consequences. This study is assessing these concerns.
