Green Iguana Society Journal Report 2003-2004


Additions to the Green Iguana Society Team

We are pleased to announce the addition of four new members to the Green Iguana Society Team. In 2003, we welcomed Dana Belstler (in March), and Paula Germond (in November). Dana and Paula help with adoption duties and answer e-mail. In 2004, the Green Iguana Society Team was joined by Dominick Giorgianni (in April) and Lyn Gallant (in September), who help with e-mail and adoption duties. The Society is lucky to have these wonderful folks helping us out, and we welcome them to the Team! For more information on the Green Iguana Society Team, visit The Green Iguana Society Team.

Other Adoption News - On November 19, 2004, the Green Iguana Society listed its 1000th iguana for adoption. While this enormous number illustrates the huge problem of unwanted iguanas in the United States and Canada, we remind ourselves of our successful adoptions (listed above) to keep us from getting discouraged. Thanks to all who have helped us find good homes for these igs!
