Our main goal is to improve the quality of life of all herbivorous lizards. In captivity and in the wild.

An important part of our foundation is about conservation and raising awareness. We point out why it is important to protect wild species and populations. Donors of the foundation contribute financially to the conservation of endangered iguana species and therefore form an important bridge between hobby and protecting nature.

In the past 10 years we supported several conservation projects.

We work toghether with different organizations like the Herpetofauna Foundation, IUCN-Iguana Specialist Group, European Studbook Foundation, EAZA, Zootropics, Bay Island Foundation, Kula Eco Park, SOS Iguana and many more.
