Frogs hop aboard Virgin flight

[ November 21, 2014   //   ]

Virgin Atlantic Cargo is helping to to save the critically-endangered mountain chicken frog. Working closely with JCS Livestock, a division of James Cargo Services, the airline carried 57 frogs – , one of the largest in the world – bred at the Durrell Wildlife Conservation Trust in Jersey and ZSL London Zoo as part of a conservation project on its scheduled flight to Antigua. For the final leg of their journey, the frogs boarded a charter flight to Montserrat where they were released into the wild.
