Green Iguana Society Team News
The Green Iguana Society Team experienced the loss of three of our beloved green friends this year. Deena (Spielman) Hergert's Jake passed away at age 14 from a respiratory infection in May. Jake, along with his friend Donnie, inspired Deena to co-found the Green Iguana Society back in 1999. Jake will be fondly remembered. His photos appear throughout the Green Iguana Society website. Team member Paula Germond lost her beautiful boy Ginger this year. Ginger was very loved. And lastly, team member Desiree Wong lost her special girl with an attitude, Vega$, in March. Vega$, Ginger and Jake continue to inspire the Team to continue the work of the Green Iguana Society. They will be greatly missed.

Adoption News - We listed 190 new iguanas on our adoption board this year. Although adoptions were slower this year than in the past, 24 iguanas were successfully adopted through our organization (see above). Thanks to all who have helped us find good homes for these igs! We've noticed a decrease in the number of iguanas put up for adoption over the past couple of years, and are hopeful that this means that more iguanas are able to stay with their original owners in their forever home.
Additions and Changes to the Green Iguana Society Website
The Green Iguana Society has regretfully decided to discontinue answering basic iguana and iguana-care questions via email. We simply do not have the manpower to keep up with the demands of the adoption board as well as answering basic questions. We are confident that our web site provides answers to most, if not all, of the questions we receive, and our message board is populated by both Green Iguana Society Team members as well as friendly and knowledgable site visitors and iguana owners that can answer questions. Thank you to all who have visited our web site and/or message board in the past and have sent us correspondence. We love hearing from our site visitors and want to help with any questions or issues. We hope that you continue to visit our website, and read and participate on our message board.
New Vet Listings
We added 7 new vets to our Approved Vets & Clinics page in 2007. Many thanks to all the folks who sent in the recommendations!
New Herp Society Listings
We added 1 new herp society to our Herpetological Societies page in 2007. Thanks to those who e-mailed us the information!
New Rescue Listings
We added 5 new rescues to our Other Adoptions and Rescues page in 2007.
Donation News - We are very grateful to the following people for making donations to the Green Iguana Society in 2007:
