San Salvador rock iguana (Cyclura rileyi rileyi) conservation program

$ 930 donated by Herpetofauna
2014 - 2014 Project duration

All of the Cyclura species are considered critically endangered and unfortunately most of them have been driven to near extinction. The population of the San Salvador rock iguana is considered to be one of the most threatened of all animal species on earth, with numbers as few 30 or less on Guana cay.

The conservation program of this remarkable species is focused on education, building and care of breeding stations as well as genetic research.
