Iguana Removal and Control
Wednesday, March 27, at 2:00 p.m.
at Founders Park Community Center
87000 Overseas Hwy., Islamorada
Join the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) and Islamorada, Village of Islands, in a public seminar regarding iguanas. Learn how to discourage iguanas from coming to your property, legal removal options, and regulations.
Learn how to stop the spread of iguanas, an invasive lizard that is not native to Florida. This species is considered to be an invasive species due to the damage they can cause to seawalls, sidewalks, and landscape plants. Iguanas are not protected in Florida except by anti-cruelty law.
Every property owner can help to control the iguana population. Learn how at this informative community training to be presented by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission.
