Iguana Island Wildlife Refuge


Iguana Island

The Iguana Island Wildlife Refuge consists of 143 acres and is located within the Los Santos Province, 3 miles off the coast. During World War II, the United States used this island as a bombing range. Native animals include crabs (among them hermit crabs), black and green iguanas, boa constrictors, and frigatebirds. It is a vital nesting ground for several species of frigatebirds, as well as sea turtles.
