IL-NIAD celebrates National
Iguana Awareness Day
Saturday, Sept. 9 2000 was the second annual National
Iguana Awareness Day. In Decatur, Illinois, IL-NIAD and the Chicago Herp
Society's "Iguana Squad" teamed up to do an educational afternoon
outside of the main entrance of Scovill Children's Zoo in Decatur. We distributed
care sheets, talked to kids and to iguana owners and provided children with
educational coloring pages and search-a-word puzzles. In other parts of
Illinois and around the country, hundreds of NIAD volunteers headed out
to pet shops, libraries, zoos, schools and other appropriate locations to
share the correct info on good green iguana care.
