George Town Primary School raises money for iguanas
Education Programmes Manager for the National Trust, Marnie Laing, receives a donation from George Town Primary School students.
George Town Primary School’s students raised $400 from their Dress Down Day fundraising initiative. The money will go towards the Blue Iguana Recovery Programme.
“We are very proud of the efforts of George Town Primary. The students have set a great example of how the community can become more involved in their environment and the funds raised will certainly help care for the Blue Iguanas at the Blue Iguana Recovery Programme,” said Marnie Laing, Education Programmes Manager for the National Trust.
The Blue Iguana is an endangered species and is only found on Grand Cayman. The Blue Iguana Recovery Programme is a captive breeding facility for Blue Iguana and was started in 1990 to help rescue them from the brink of extinction.
The programme is housed at the Queen Elizabeth II Botanic Park and offers Blue Iguana Safari Tours every Tuesday and Thursday at 2:00 pm.
