General Iguana Care | Links | Home

NC Iguana Rescue Association is a volunteer group dedicated to the care, understanding, and fair treatment of iguanas. Many of our volunteers aid in the rehabilitation and adoption of abandoned, abused, and/or neglected iguanas. There are many calls to NCIRA each year requesting assistance with placement and rehabilitation. Together with other NCIRA volunteers and allies, we strive to educate and promote understanding in the hopes that everyone will make informed decisions regarding the purchase or adoption of green iguanas.

Amazing Animals was an amazing success! NCIRA participated in Amazing Animals Day at the Children's Museum in Greensboro, NC on 10-4-2003 and helped educate visitors of all ages about the green iguana.

Current Projects: Petition for Pet Store Accountability for the Care and Keeping of Green Iguanas. Pet stores frequently give out grossly inaccurate information to customers who purchase green iguanas. The goal of our petition is to create a law which requires pet stores to not only keep their iguanas for sale in healthy conditions, but to give correct information regarding their care to the people who buy their iguanas.
