Cerro Dragon, situated in the northwestern part of Santa Cruz Island, is named after the fact that in 1975, it was one of the only sites in this island, where land iguanas were found in a healthy state. The iguanas were studied and then transported to a place specifically designed for breeding these animals in captivity. Luckily this measure allowed them to be saved from wild dogs and other domestic animals gone feral. In 1979 the first specimens were born and the populations were transported to the island of Venice. Several iguanas have reproduced on this island, then they were repatriated on Dragon Hill in 1990. In the lagoons, there are shrimp, which serves as food for flamingos; at certain times of the year the shrimp is more abundant and therefore the population of these birds is larger.
