The Indianapolis Zoo has been involved in the Dominican Republic for almost ten years and will continue its research and conservation efforts with the Ricord's iguana. The zoo's Project Iguana aids the survival of West Indian Iguanas and their habitats through in situ conservation, captive breeding, public education, and scientific research.

The Hispaniolan Ground Iguana, Ricord's Ground Iguana, Ricord's Rock Iguana,or Ricord's Iguana (Cyclura ricordi) is a critically endangered species of lizard of the genus cyclura in the Iguanidae family. It is found in the Dominican Republic and Haiti and is the only known species of rock iguana to coexist with another cyclura species, the Rhinoceros Iguana (Cyclura cornuta). Its natural habitat is dry savanna within three subpopulations in the Southwestern Dominican Republic. It is threatened by habitat loss due to agricultural encroachment.[1
