Iguanas from Above

The marine iguana (Amblyrhynchus cristatus) is a charismatic and endemic species of the Galápagos Islands that is threatened with extinction. The species consists of 11 subspecies, each of which is unique and important for the survival of the species as a whole. Since the marine iguana is endemic, it is not found anywhere else on earth (not even in zoos!). If it is lost from the Galápagos Islands, then it is lost forever.

We are collecting photographs from the coastlines of the Galapagos Islands. From these images, we can count marine iguanas to greatly improve their conservation – and you can help.
