Iguana Research Project
Field Work Gets Results

On going work dates back to 2006 when Edgar first collaborated with Ricky Escobar, Wildlife Biologist from Loma Linda University performing an extensive research project on Sandy cay in the Exuma island chain (Bahamas).

Continuing work include iguana population surveys assessing the ongoing species recovery as well as radio telemetry studies done with various size animals, studying movement, activity patterns, home range size, and sleeping habits.  On going invasive species status surveys for rodents, and non-native plant species are also performed. 

Through conservation efforts this endangered species of Sandy Cay Iguana has increased from less than 150 individuals to over 1200 in 10 years.
