EUSTATIUS–Teachers and professionals working with school children on St. Eustatius received lesson plans and materials about iguanas from St. Eustatius National Park STENAPA this week.
The Lesser Antillean iguana was recently declared critically endangered and can only be found in Statia, Anguilla, St. Barths, Dominica, Guadeloupe and Martinique.
After presentations in the meeting room of STENAPA’s building in Lower Town, the nature organisation’s guests went outside to have a look at the iguanas living in the tree next to the office.
The event was part of an EU Best Project, executed with partners Anguilla National Trust and the natural reserve in St. Barths.
Statia participants came from NuStar Statia Terminal, Daughters of the King Foundation, Caribbean Netherlands Science Institute (CNSI) and other educational establishments.
Organizers said that teachers who were not able to attend the event may send an email to email@example.com to have the materials sent to them.
