23-09-2012 - Galapagos pink land iguana
The Galápagos Pink Land Iguana (Conolophus marthae) is listed the IUCN Red List as “Critically Endangered”. Possible hybridation with a syntopic population of C. subcristatus is one of the issues that threaten the existence of this species. This project aims at clarifying the frequency of hybridization and level of genetic introgression between the two species for the purposes of a coming head-start/captive breeding program.
