6 May 2008 - The John Gray Recyclers are deeply saddened to hear of the senseless killing of six Grand Cayman Blue Iguanas.  Our thoughts and prayers are with Fred Burton and people at the Botanical Gardens having to deal with this shocking cruelty and terrible loss of God's precious creatures! Follow the Links below to our JGR Blog, Blue Iguana Recovery Website, and the IRCF website, to find out more about this horrific act of cruelty to beautiful harmless endangered creatures!  www.johngrayrecyclers.org/ourblog/
We are deeply saddened because we were with Pedro when he met Prince Edward last year and in those few hours that we spent with him we learned so much about the Blue Iguanas and how precious they are!  Pedro we will not forget you!
 
7 May 2008 - Matthias succumbs to his injuries bringing the death toll of these beautiful endangered creatures to seven!  How could anyone be so cruel? Why did someone have to destroy them during breeding time?  This is so sickening and sad!
