The Iguana Specialist Group (ISG) is a volunteer member network of experts from various backgrounds and geographic areas around the world that are dedicated to the conservation of iguana species and their habitat. This group is one of more than 100 Specialist Groups organized through the IUCN Species Survival Commission (SSC). Specialist groups work with the SSC to enhance conservation of species by providing scientific advice to conservation organizations, government agencies, and other IUCN members, and support the implementation of multilateral environmental agreements. ISG members work with the IUCN to provide critical information on the status of iguana species for the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species. The IUCN Red List is used by experts, government agencies, educators, conservation-based non-government organizations, and others to obtain information on the status of biodiversity, species, and ecosystems. This information is often used to enhance research, create national and international laws, and draw attention to global conservation needs.
