Blue Iguanas in Peril due to Hurrican Ivan – 09/12/2004Sep 12th, 2004 | By admin | Category: Blues in the Local Press
Ivan, a Category 5 hurricane ripped through Grand Cayman on Sunday, September 12, 2004 and has left the island destroyed beyond imagination. View the photo’s just in from Grand Cayman showing images before Hurricane Ivan arrived and the aftermath upon Ivan’s departure.
The IRCF sent John Binns to assist in recovery efforts. Check HERE for updates from Grand Cayman.
NEWS FROM FRED: “Considering the facility is an open patch of space, the Gods protected the iguanas during this hurricane, not one fallen tree or flying object impacted any of the cages, where the rest of the island suffered severe devastation, not 100 yards away. It’s going to take considerable resources to get this program’s infrastructure on its feet. We can be grateful the iguanas are OK but the task of recovery is now much more of a challenge than we faced before”.
