This chapter discusses the ecological and biogeographic characteristics of West Indian iguanas that favor translocation efforts. It focuses on three taxa of West Indian iguanas: the Jamaican iguana (Cyclura collei), the Anegada iguana (Cyclura pinguis), and the Grand Cayman iguana (Cyclura nubila lewisi). It begins by evaluating past translocation programs and then examines the factors affecting translocation success. It also presents recommendations for future iguana translocation programs.
