1/3 of registrants a no-show in early days of green iguana cull

Roughly one third of companies, individuals, and teams registered to cull green iguanas are yet to deliver a single iguana to the counting station.

So far, more than 140,000 green iguanas have been removed from the environment in just over three weeks of culling. In that time, 349 registrants have maintained a daily average of more than 7,400 iguanas, despite more than a handful of no-shows.

“What we are seeing is,  of the 300+ registered cullers, probably about a third haven’t even come to the landfill as of yet,” said cull manager Karl Noble.”The remainder is probably split where your have some overachieving and have some underachieving, my job is then to realign things based on what people actually done so far.”

After a big first week where more than 50,000 iguanas were delivered to the counting station, the numbers appear to be leveling out.

Cullers’ quotas will be adjusted based on the first month’s performance.
