Rules of Conduct

On Little Water Cay

Follow the trails and signs on site and stay on pathways and boardwalks – avoid walking on iguana burrows and crushing their eggs

Do not harass or chase the iguanas and keep noise to a minimum. We know that stress causes them to live shorter lives

Keep your distance – they are wild animals which can bite and cause nasty infections

Do not feed the iguanas – feeding can harm them

Reduce the risk of fire by not smoking or setting fires, which is illegal under the National Parks Ordinance

Take your trash away with you – litter attracts rats which destroy iguana eggs

No dogs or cats are allowed – they can kill iguanas

Thank You.
