Help Amphibian Conservation in the Caribbean
You can help conserve amphibians in Dominica by behaving responsibly to prevent the spread of chytrid, or contacting some of our partners to find out more about current conservation work in Dominica.
The mountain chicken is now regarded as being at risk of extinction. The Dominican government has made it illegal to hunt or eat mountain chicken or to possess these frogs or parts of these frogs. It is now also illegal to import frogs or frog products to Dominica.
How to help when in Dominica:
- Do not touch frogs unless it is absolutely necessary.
- Never move a frog from one area to another or from one island to another.
- Clean and dry all equipment and footwear between visiting sites where wild amphibians live.
- Obey the law and do not hunt or eat the mountain chicken.
- Please report any sightings of mountain chickens (healthy, sick or dead) to:
