Population research on the endangered Lesser Antillean Iguana on the Dutch Caribbean island of St. Eustatius is in full swing. From April to June, 60% of the island was scoured and 212 iguanas were observed, of which 160 animals are now individually identified and participate in scientific research. This research is an important part of the conservation plan which was launched in September 2014 by St. Eustatius National Parks (STENAPA) and RAVON.
