Four Decades of Student-Faculty Study

The rocky terrain and thorny vegetation where some of the world’s most critically endangered iguanas roam can be daunting to navigate, even for the most seasoned scientific researchers.

Just try catching one without scraping your knee, Earlham College’s John Iverson says.

He would know. For the last 38 years, he has been studying West Indian Rock Iguanas with students on the remote islands of The Bahamas every May in what is the longest running, continuous study of iguanas in the world. And with their help, the reptiles are slowly fighting off extinction.

Earlham College, an independent, residential college, aspires to provide the highest-quality undergraduate education in the liberal arts, including the sciences, shaped by the distinctive perspectives of the Religious Society of Friends (Quakers).
