Iguanas are a very diverse group of reptiles. There are 8 genera and 45 species of iguana still living today. Most of these species are in peril and in critical need of conservation. The International Iguana Foundation works with researchers and organizations to preserve this diversity through funding field conservation and iguana recovery programs as well as raising public awareness for iguanas.
To the left is a listing of some of the iguana species in existence today. These species represent a small portion of iguanas and are associated with IIF supported programs.
The map below shows the geographic location of iguana species. The large numbers, when fully zoomed out, represent the number of tags in that geographic area. A species may have multiple flags if it is found in several locations. Zoom in on an area using the + sign at the top left or by double-clicking on the region of interest. Once zoomed in, you can hover over the individual red flags to see what particular species are found in that country or area.
