Cayman’s green iguana cull aims to pick up in 2019 where it left off in 2018.
According to statistics from the Department of Environment, nearly 300,000 (298,132) invasive green iguanas were delivered to the counting station last year.
Cullers averaged more than 36,000 iguanas through the first seven weeks of the program.
Weeks eight and nine coincided with the peak of festive season and the average dropped by about half, to just shy of 19,000 per week.
The cull is expected to run through 2019 with a goal of 1.4 million iguanas by year’s end.
