While establishing our assurance colonies with Richard Branson on Necker Island, we were amazed by the thriving population of Anegada Island Iguanas (Cyclura pinguis). In the early 80s, several Iguanas were taken to Necker Island in an attempt to save the species and since then the population has grown to approximately 150-200 individuals. This Critically Endangered species has been able to recover here because it does not have to compete with livestock for food and there are no feral animals to prey on it.
