Durrell field programme
Durrell Wildlife Park
Found surviving on just one offshore island, the Round Island boa had declined to just 50 snakes by the 1970's. Following 40 years of habitat restoration and successful translocations, an estimated 1500 boas can now be found on two islands in Mauritius.
