The Forestry Wildlife and Parks Division continue to work on ensuring that the mountain chicken… what used to be Dominica’s National Dish does not become extinct.
A few years ago, the Mountain Chicken was threatened by a fungal disease which reduced the crapaud population in Dominica by about seventy percent (70%).
In response to this situation, the Government of Dominica, placed a ban on the hunting of the frog and established a bio technology lab at the Botanic Gardens to carefully study the frog in captivity.
Acting Director of Agriculture Ricky Brumant says much progress has been made. cont./
