Green Iguana Society Team News
The Green Iguana Society Team was greatly saddened by two losses this year. Marie Poyner passed away in September. Marie was an active member of the online iguana community and was an invaluable member of our message board team. If you are interested in donating money to help with the care of Marie's special-needs iguanas Dragon and Baby, please visit our message board for information on how you can help. Also, we lost one of our green friends this year. Bubbette, team member Darry Conner's beloved iguana, passed away unexpectedly. We will always remember Marie and Bubbette and will miss them greatly.

Adoption News - We listed 271 new iguanas on our adoption board this year. Although adoptions were slower this year than in the past, 34 iguanas were successfully adopted through our organization (see above). Thanks to all who have helped us find good homes for these igs!
Additions to the Green Iguana Society Website
The Green Iguana Society has regretfully decided to discontinue membership. We have been so pleased that so many folks have joined the Society in the past 7 years! However, the number of membership forms coming in has become overwhelming and we do not have the manpower or the server space to handle them all. We want to tell everyone who has joined in the past and everyone who was interested in joining in the future that we are so happy that you share with us a love of green iguanas and a wish to join a community of fellow ig lovers! We hope that you continue to visit our website, and read and participate on our message board.
