Endangered blue iguana run over in East End

Just weeks after installing signage warning drivers to look out for endangered blue iguanas, a six-year old breeding male is killed on the roadway.
The Department of Environment said a total of five bi-directional warning signs were recently installed in East End along the Queen’s Highway and Sunnyfield Road.
The DOE said there have been at least four blue iguana road deaths this year.
“We only get the information that people or the general public and us, so that means that a lot of blues could be killed on the roads and removed by predators, dogs, night heron’s, or feral cats let’s say, so we always consider the actual information with a grain of salt, we are probably only seen the tip of the iceberg,” said Jane Haakonsson, DOE terrestrial research officer.
The DOE told Cayman 27 the driver of one of its vehicles witnessed another vehicle accidentally run over the male blue.
