Caribbean - Caribbean Iguanas
The International Iguana Foundation (IIF) funds and partners with organizations in the Caribbean to aid the survival of several endangered island iguana species. The IIF educates the public on the important roles that iguanas play in the ecosystem and the threats that iguana face in their respective environments, conducts field research, supports recovery programs and operates a grants program for the conservation of endangered iguanas. The IIF conducted an ecological assessment of the endangered Andros Island Iguana in the Bahamas, a filed survey of nesting and hatching of the Ricordís Iguana in the Dominican Republic and Haiti, and provides core support funding for the Jamaican Iguana Recovery Program. Zoo Miami contributed funding in 2010 towards helping the IIF continue its successful programs and serves on the IIF board..
