Andros iguana : conservation action plan, 2005-2011
IUCN Publication
Abstract: 

The endangered Andros iguana, Cyclura cychlura cychlura, is the largest native terrestrial vertebrate, and the only iguana (of 3 species) in the Bahamas that is not confined presently to small cays. The Andros iguana is unique to Andros Island and despite the recent formation of a national park on North Andros Island in 2002, the population is declining. This document presents a comprehensive plan for conservation measures considered essential to the long-term survival of this flagship species in the wild. It combines the knowledge and expertise of highly qualified experts from government and non-government organizations within The Bahamas with the collective conservation experience and scientific expertise of the IUCN/SSC Iguana Specialist Group.
