Durrell Wildlife Conservation Trust
Durrell has been involved with the mountain chicken and conservation efforts in Montserrat since 1997 when asked by the Government to establish an assurance population of the frogs in response to the volcanic eruptions. Most recently Durrell led a collaborative 2010-2013 Darwin Initiative research project to develop a long-term restoration strategy. This led to the 20-year Mountain Chicken Recovery Plan, which Durrell co-ordinate through their Saving Amphibians from Extinction – SAFE Programme in addition to continuing to support monitoring efforts on Montserrat and maintaining a captive breeding programme in Jersey.
