Together with our partners we have developed a ground-breaking plan to turn this species into a symbol of hope.

Creating these safe havens has never been done before but it is the first vital stepping stone on the path to species recovery.

Global Goals

Our goal is that we can restore the mountain chicken back its native range through a series of the safe havens. Providing this concept as a tool for conservationists to replicate worldwide would reprepsent a giant leap forward in the clobal fight against chytrid.
