Lesser Antillean Iguana

Given the continued spread of non-native Green Iguana throughout the Lesser Antilles the regional endemic iguana, Lesser Antillean Iguana, is rapidly declining. With recent hybridization now also present on the island of St. Eustatius we are trying to stop this process, catch all non-native iguanas and prevent future invasions to thereby safeguard this populations' future.
