Do you want to help iguanas? One of the best things you can do for iguanas, besides taking good care of yours, is to help other people learn about iguanas and how to take good care of them. Here are some things that you can do to help:

    - Set a good example for others by taking good care of your own iguana. Show your friends, neighbors and brothers/sisters how to do a good job.

    - Arrange with your teacher and your parents to take your iguana to school for Show-and-Tell. Make handouts with good iguana care information to give to your classmates.

    -Did you find a good book about taking care of iguanas - one with up-to-date information? Tell others about it!

    - Tell people about web sites you've found that have good, updated iguana care information.

    - Do you know other people who have pet iguanas? Offer to pet-sit for them when they are traveling. It is often hard for people to find good iguana-sitters.

    - Did you find a good vet for your iguana? Tell other people you know with pet iguanas about your vet, and make sure they know how important it is that their iguana has yearly check-ups.

    - Do you have your own web site? You can use your site to direct people to the Green Iguana Society and other web sites to find good iguana care information.

    - Continue to learn all you can about iguanas, and share what you've learned with others. You can tell people about iguanas when you take yours with you to places like the park, or the pet store (if the pet store allows you to bring your pet).

These are just a few of the ways you can help other people learn about iguana care. You can probably think of many more ways to help. Don't forget to sit down with an adult and visit the Green Iguana Society web site often for information updates!
