The molestation, capturing, illegal hunting and the indiscriminate killing of Green Iguanas (Iguana iguana) commonly referred to as Guana, Bamboo Chicken, Garobo, Iguana is prohibited from February 1st to June 30th. The female iguanas are caring for developing eggs during these months. The Machaca Forest Station can be contacted for any reports at telephone number 702-2765 or via email at [email protected]. Let's put an end to the Easter tradition of killing the females full of eggs.
