The goal of the Mountain Chicken Recovery Programme is to enable the restoration of the mountain chicken frog within its native range on Montserrat and Dominica.


To achieve this goal a group of organisations have come together to lead conservation efforts on the ground in each island, manage a captive breeding and reintroduction programme and generate the necessary knowledge through research that will help us understand better the ecology and management of chytrid to ensure that mountain chickens can persist in the wild.
