Endangered Species Breeding
Kula Eco Park is the world’s biggest captive breeding center for Fiji’s rare crested iguana and Ground Frogs.
Current breeding projects include the extremely rare Monuriki Crested Iguana.
Experts believe that there are less than 30 adults of these genetically unique iguanas left in the wild today.
Kula Eco Park, working under a Memorandum of Understanding with the National Trust for Fiji and the Land Owners of Monuriki Island has, as part of its captive breeding and head start program, bred 15 specimens in captivity in just two years. 8 more eggs are being artificially incubated.
The incubation of the eggs takes anywhere from seven to nine months.
Most of the captive bred iguanas will be returned home by 2015 to help repopulated the island.
Monuriki Crested Iguana is genetically unique and listed as Critically Endangered .
Fiji Crested Iguana eggs are artificially incubated at Kula Eco Park Lab. Incubation takes from 7 to nine months.
This program is available to all Fiji primary schools and is specially targeted at children from classes 6 to 8.
Only one class is held on any given day.
Through a sponsorship program, the park is able to pay either full or part of the transport costs for the children coming to the education class since many parents cannot afford the expense.
Started in 1998, over 9,500 children have been through this education program.
Thank you to our visitors, who help sponsor the transport cost. Without your help this program would not be possible.
Your visit helps support the endangered Species Breeding program and the free environmental education classes provided by the park for Fiji’s school children.
