The Grand Cayman Blue Iguana
With dragon-like qualities and a gorgeous blue color, it’s no wonder the Blue Iguanas fascinate both locals and visitors alike. These iguanas grow up to be more than five feet long and more than 25 pounds. Even though they have a long lifespan (they can live as long as humans), they almost went extinct. The Blue Iguana Recovery Programme was created to hopefully save these gorgeous creatures from extinction. So far, they are doing a great job!

More About the Blue Iguana Recovery Program
These magnificent creatures almost went extinct in 2002. Blue iguanas were sadly disappearing due to habitat destruction, getting hit by cars, or getting hunted by stray dogs, feral cats, and even snakes. Since then, numerous efforts have been made to help the blue iguanas flourish once again. Conservation efforts include creating subpopulations in protected areas, then releasing them when the reptiles are old enough to fend for themselves. Thankfully, with hard work from many dedicated individuals, the wild population of blue iguanas in the Cayman Islands is increasing.
