Conservation of the Jamaican Iguana

$ 2,195 donated by Herpetofauna
2010 - 2011 Project duration

The Jamaican iguana is probably the most endangered animal in the world, with a population of no more than a few dozen. The loss of natural habitat by means of bauxite mining is one of the problems, also poaching is a serious threat. To ensure protection the national parks must be better equipped with communication recourses, this will also help protect a vast number of other species.  

The project will help to better the infrastructure of the natural habitat and will build breeding stations for the iguanas. This project was started by the SDGL.
