Fijian Crested Iguana Breeding Program

This vivid green lizard is thriving only on one Fijian island, so to ensure the species survives in the case that habitat is destroyed, groups of iguanas are being moved to other islands.

Protection of the Fijian Crested Iguana

Taronga is helping local landowners and the Fijian government ensure a future for the endangered Fijian Crested Iguana by translocating iguanas to new locations.

Veterinary Screening of Fijian Crested Iguanas

Fires and storms could ravage the habitat of the Fijian Crested Iguana, but by moving two groups of the lizards to other islands on the archipelago, this project insures the species against extinction.
