Project Summary:
Saving the Cayman Islands Blue Iguana from extinction is not enough. Transitioning the Blue Iguana Recovery Programme to sustain conservation success will be achieved by developing an updated Strategic Action Plan, by increasing the efficiency of the captive breeding facility through better nutrition and isolating the iguanas from new diseases carried by invasive alien species, and by providing sufficient financial and human resources to monitor the progress of 1,000 iguanas set free to roam 900 acres of wild reserves.
