Blue Iguana

These lizards are critically endangered; in 2003 fewer than 15 animals remained in the wild. However, thanks to the efforts of the Blue Iguana Recovery Programme, every year around 100 young iguanas are released back into the wild. I photographed this free-roaming adult male in the Queen Elizabeth II Botanic Park.
