When Dominica was hit in 2002 with a dangerous fungus known as Batrachochytrium dendrobatidis, many feared the population of mountain chickens might disappear by the end of the decade. While the species’ population did take a significant hit, it has survived to this day with a Critically Endangered conservation status. Current conservation efforts include a breeding facility obtained through a Darwin Initiative grant and the creation of natural spaces for the frogs where the dangerous fungus cannot invade.
