Our Float - 500 Years Cayman - Protect our Heritage
Sponsor a Grand Cayman Baby Blue Iguana

This year our major sponsor was the Cayman Islands' Department of Environmental Health. We were also sponsored by the National Trust for the Cayman Islands, the Cayman Islands' Department of Environment, and the Cayman Islands' National Art Gallery.
 
We decided that it was important to notify the public of the new Blue Iguana programmes being organised by the National Trust/National Art Gallery. The Blue Iguana is a protected species in the Cayman Islands and each island, Grand Cayman, Cayman Brac and Little Cayman has different variations of this species. There only approximately 20 of these iguanas found in the wild in Grand Cayman at the current time. The Grand Cayman Iguana is being bred at the Cayman Islands' Botanical Park in North Side. This year over 90 blue iguanas were born. The cost to look after these iguanas for a year is approximately CI$750.00. Due to the high cost of protecting these iguanas the National Trust has organised a sponsorship programme where people can adopt and sponsor one of these iguanas for a year at the above cost. At this cost they would also be able to give a name for their iguana.
 
The National Art Gallery under the directorship of Mrs Leslie Bigelman are organising a "Blue Dragon" programme. They have fibreglass iguanas which have been painted by artists in the Community. These very life-like iguanas are to be placed in the new Grand Cayman parks. It costs CI$2,500 to become an owner of one of these iguanas.
 
Mrs Leslie Bigelman is currently giving talks about both programmes and can be contacted at the Cayman Islands' National Art Gallery.
