Happy World lizard day 2019 from The International Iguana Foundation!
The International Iguana Foundation worked closely with the Jamaican Environment Trust to collaborate on bringing I-Roy the Jamaican Iguana to life in this video! Jamaican Iguanas have been brought back from the brink of extinction through headstart program, but are still at risk. This video aims to tell the story of I-Roy and his friends and what people can do to help! This work would not be possible without the partnership of the Hope Zoo and the National Environment and Planning Agency (NEPA).
The iguana rangers tell us more about how the Jamaican iguanas are ecosystem engineers!
