Some additional recent highlights:
IRCF has now partnered with Project Heloderma, to help preserve the
Guatemalan Beaded Lizard, a species with fewer than 200 individuals
remaining in the wild. The IRCF will be present at the National
Reptile Breeders' Expo this August in Daytona Beach, FL sponsoring
the auction benefiting the Guatemalan Beaded Lizard. Your assistance
with donations and on-site tasks is greatly appreciated.
We also have started coordinating volunteers for Team Blue 2006 to
assist with the Blue Iguana Recovery Program. During the months from
August through December, Team Blue will be involved with activities
such as trail development, production of retreats for the Salina,
release of head-started iguanas, among other tasks. Team Blue is in
immediate need of one to two volunteers in the 8/28-9/12 timeframe.
The IGUANA journal has arrived in the mail! We appreciate the
patience of our members but the wait is well worth it! With a
stunning cover featuring a Malaysian Flying Lizard and 90+ pages of
articles, photos and information, we strive to invigorate and educate
The IRCF has also published the Spring edition of Blue Iguana Tales
(http://www.blueiguana.ky). Learn about recent Program highlights and

members! The efforts of even a single person can have a positive,
lasting impact on the preservation of endangered species.
