Durrell field programme
Durrell Wildlife Park
With a booming call and a unique breeding strategy, the mountain chicken is one of the largest frogs in the world. Exposed to the devastating amphibian disease chytridiomycosis, an estimated 99% of the global population has been lost in the last 12 years.
