Cayman Brac Iguana Count
The Big Brac Iguana count will take place JAN-FEB 2012. A project of the Cayman Islands Department of Environment in partnership with the National Trust, the Blue Iguana Recovery Programme and international volunteers, our primary objective is to locate, count and tag these little understood Rock Iguanas, which range across the rugged and physically challenging landscape of Cayman Brac. Efforts in the field are being coordinated by local naturalist Bonnie Edwards, who also mans the “Brac Iguana Hotline”. Bonnie has assembled a team of a dozen local and international volunteers in the hope of shedding some light on the conservation status of this remarkable reptile. Cousin to Grand Cayman’s famous Blue iguana, the Sister Islands (Ivory-crested) Rock Iguana is limited in its range to the tiny islands of Cayman Brac and nearby Little Cayman.
For more information about the project, call Bonnie Edwards on the Iguana Hotline (1-345) 917-7744, or Mat Cottam at the Department of Environment (1-345) 949-8469. Mat.Cottam@gov.ky.
