The famous Hope Town Lizard Lodge disappeared sometime last September. However, after several months the new Lodge, more akin now to a Lizard Mansion, has returned.
Each year a research group spends between two and four weeks on Abaco to continue their research on the brown anole lizard, which is very abundant here. They are studying “how the curly tail lizard affects the brown anole, and how the presence of the brown anole affects the rest of the ecosystem on the islands." This project commenced over 30 years ago and two members of the present group have been coming since its inception.
