I highly recommend stopping here while on your stay in Utila. It is very educational and gives you a better insight to what is happening on the island.
We arrived just as they were feeding the Iguanas. The staff greeted us and welcomed us to the place. They allowed us to assist in feeding the iguanas all while giving us a view of what they do there and on the island.
They are a good organization working on many things other than the iguanas.
I recommend stopping in for a visit and learn some interesting facts.
They do welcome donations to help support their efforts.

It's neither a zoo nor an iguana farm, the Iguana Station is an honest grassroots project dedicated to the research and conservation of Utila's wildlife and ecosystems, as well as promoting local youth.

The station was built 25 years ago as a joint project of German and Honduran scientists. Since 2008 the project is now part of the Bay Islands Foundation, a non-profit and non-governmental organization from Honduras.

Wish this place was visited more. The volunteers provided an excellent guided tour and history of why the iguanas are so scarse and how they are working to improve the population

Great initiative and friendly staff. We did a short (free) tour and walk of the grounds to see the iguanas. Donation based service

A VERY special place - I volunteered here for 4 months many years ago. Learnt so much. So many great people on this island working to protect it, and I always fondly remember Elga’s omelettes :)
Terry the dog and Beauty the dog will be dead now but they were super special too, and Ray Charles the rat who was a little legend!
Anyone who has the chance to volunteer - go for it! You will be doing genuine, vital work.

The volunteers here are super knowledgeable and informative. Free admission and donations accepted for a great cause. They are invested in education in the schools for environmental preservation and restoration. A short bike ride from main Street up hill. Our single speed cruisers were a challenge but standing up and a bit of effort would get me up the steeper stretches. Follow the signs not hard to find. Displays and guided tour probably took about 30 minutes at most. Recommended.

If you love animals and want to protect the nature they live in, the Iguana Station is a great place to be. Dedicated to environmentalists who want to share and learn exciting facts about a unique island dragon living only in the Utila Mangrove world wide. If it isn´t worth to sea local animals which only been rediscovered for science in 1996 to be still alive on this planet than i don´t know :). The nice volunteers will answer you any questions and you can be an volunteer, too. PS: The station is financed by donations only.

Friendly staff, provided great information and tour of the facility and well as some "real" education, not just script. Cool place... check it out

Place is small, free to view, and trying very hard to preserve the endemic native black iguana from extinction. Deserves any support given.

There's a lot of interesting information about this endemic and endangered specie. The volunteer program and other researchs are very exciting as well.

The Iguana Research and Breeding Station is a vital source of information about the bidiversity of Utila (and for the world) it studies the Ctenosaura bakeri (Swamper) wich is a endagered species. They help because they care.
