A large group of volunteers and well-wishers saw off the last 12 of the twenty-five young Blues to go free this year, on Sunday. Highlights were the release of little twin “Ivan” who is finally big enough to go free, and mature young female “Connie” whose freedom day had been delayed two years waiting for younger siblings to take her place in the captive facility. Sponsored by St. Ignatius Catholic School, and Conyers Dill & Pearman respectively, these two were released by St. Ignatius student Hannah Reid, and CD&P’s Tracy Cuff. Sarah Broad of Walkers (who are one of the BIRP’s major local corporate sponsors) also joined in the release, as did representatives of AL Thompson’s (who recently donated lumber to the project).

Our Team Blue volunteers Doug Bell, Stacey Summit and Sarah Wills have been out in the Salina over the two days since, and have seen many of the newly free iguanas cautiously exploring their surroundings. Ivan seems to have found a rock hole on the trail more attractive than his release retreat, while Connie is being a model homebody and showing all the signs of staking her territory right where we released her.
