Baby Iguanas and Crocodiles Released in El Salado
The objectives of Fideicomiso Estero el Salado is creating actions and guidelines involved in conserving, restoring and maintaining the resources of the protected natural area as well as the other areas of the Puerto Vallarta/Banderas Bay region.
Last week, 100 iguanas, which were 2 months old and each about 35 centimeters, and 50 crocodiles, which were 2-3 years old and ranging from 60 centimeters to one meter in length, that had been born in the UMA Reptile Habitat were released into the protected El Salado Estuary.
Wildlife release is part of the action program for the conservation of natural resources at the El Salado Estuary which works closely with the UMA Reptile Habitat at the University de la Costa and the Puerto Vallarta International Convention Center.
The crocodiles were born to be released in the El Salado Estuary and raised and cared for by trained students and staff at the UMA Reptile Habitat and their release was open to viewing by the public.
