Rotterdam/Oranjestad- The Statian Iguanas which were transported to The Netherlands back in May 2018 in the light of a protection and breeding program are prominently displayed at Rotterdam’s Blijdorp Zoo.

Apart from the display itself, mentioning the iguanas being from St. Eustatius and an endangered species, there is also a display providing background information on the project. Pictures show details of the journey of the iguanas to The Netherlands on the Government-owned plane.
