Jamaica News: 19 iguanas have been released back into the wild.
The project is part of an effort to increase the local population in Jamaica.
14 females and 5 males were released ah select points in Jamaican woods and forests.
Before each iguana is released the animal is scanned with a Passive Integrated Transponder (PIT) to make sure their tracking chip is operating. The chip is the size of a rice grain and each iguana has a unique code. Their location is marked with a GPS.
The project was jointly undertaken by Caribbean Coastal Area Management Foundation.
