STENAPA opens its Iguana Hotline   | THE DAILY HERALD

St. Eustatius’ Lesser Antillean iguana caught in Concordia.

ST. EUSTATIUS–The local Lesser Antillean iguanas on St. Eustatius are receiving another helping hand with the creation of an Iguana Hotline.

St. Eustatius National Parks Foundation STENAPA is asking everyone to add the hotline’s telephone number 318-1420 to their contacts, then call or send a WhatsApp message for sightings of the invasive green iguana with black bands on the tail.

“Also, persons can contact the Iguana Hotline if you see a local iguana that needs to be tagged, relocated or sadly has been involved in a road accident,” said STENAPA Director Clarisse Buma.

“The possibilities of road accidents increase during dry periods, Buma said, so it would be beneficial to keep the hotline in mind when it gets hot and dry. Please do not hesitate to call if you have any information or questions about conservation efforts of Statia’s largest land animal. Also, feel free to share the iguana hotline with your friends and visitors,” Buma said.
