Galapagos Iguana

From Summer Times, 9:05 am on 11 January 2019

New Zealand has had a significant role to play in the return of land iguana to one of the Galapagos Islands almost 200 years since they were wiped out by introduced predators.

Massey University's had a long association with the Galapagos Islands - after all we have a great deal in common, being home to many unique species. The translocation of land iguanas to Santiago Island is big news internationally.
