Iguanas and Conservation Workshop

Participants from across the Caribbean and Central America attended the 2019 Iguanas and Conservation Workshop in Roatan, Honduras. Attendees were able to capture and tag 98 iguanas, which will feed into our long-term natural history study to monitor population fluctuations and threat impacts, as well as allow us to better understand the longevity of this species in the wild. Presentations focused on the reproductive biology of the species, dietary studies, and radio tracking and other monitoring techniques.

´╗┐The Fort Worth Zoo helped make the workshop possible with our partners at the International Iguana Foundation, Kanahau Utila Research and Conservation Facility and the Black Iguana Golf Course.
