BENEFITING: Island Conservation
Ever wondered where the Wild Things REALLY are? We know. It’s a formidable place, more than a hundred feet below sea level, scorched by the sun, and surrounded by a lake full of crocodiles. It’s Isla Cabritos in the Dominican Republic.
Wild Things live there amongst the island’s strange dry forests. King of the Wild Things is the IUCN* Critically Endangered Ricord's Iguana. Isla Cabritos is his home, along with other weird and wonderful creatures such as the Rhinoceros Iguana, the Hispaniolan slider, the White-necked crow, Burrowing owls, and flamingos.
There is a new threat to the Wild Things. Invasive species introduced by people are destroying the island’s native ecosystem and the Wild Things are in grave danger. We can stop them from disappearing forever by removing the introduced species, but we can't do it without you.
Your financial support is critical to save the Wild Things of Isla Cabritos.
