The main aim of the Protection and Research Project is the preservation of the Utila iguana in its natural habitat and breeding areas. The Iguana Station is successful in promoting local awareness environmental education; discussion with decision-makers in environmental and development matters on Utila and in Honduras; outdoor research; and sustainable development. A combination of experience and careful planning has ensured the continuous improvement of the breeding program at the Station, which is helping to increase the numbers of the wild population of the Utila iguana. A breeding program is also starting up in cooperation with international zoos, ensuring that there is an external genetic pool and therefore making it possible for people to see the Utila iguana in other countries.
