FYI, on April 21 - 22, 2013 we released 52 headstart Jamaican iguanas (Cyclura collei) This brings the total number of iguanas to 226 that have been reintroduced to their native Hellshire Hills since 1996.

health screen assessments were conducted by a team from San Diego Zoo Global, Fort Worth Zoo, National Zoo, the Dutch Iguana Foundation and the Hope Zoo. The Director of the Jamaican Iguana Conservation and Recovery Program, Dr. Byron Wilson, and his young son Adam were on hand for the releases, and are shown here releasing the historic 200th iguana. Overseeing this complex process was Tandora Grant (San Diego Zoo Global), who manages both the captive populaton and studbook for this species.
