Richard Branson is the owner of Necker and Mosquito Islands in the British Virgin Islands. British Virgin Islands Bird Re-introduction is about the re-introducing of three species of birds that have not been seen in the BVI for more than 100 years.
Virgin Media mogul Richard Branson announced through his blog that his company is in the process beginning a British Virgin Islands bird re-introduction. The three species—the Flamingo, the Scarlet Ibis and the Roseate Spoonbill—haven’t been seen there for 100 to 150 years.
“This is the first Scarlet Ibis born in the British Virgin Islands for over 100 years” Branson writes on his blog. “They are completely different colour to their parents, which I suspect is so they are not so noticeable to predators when they are young. They turn the incredible scarlet colour after a couple of years.”
Necker Island is an exclusive resort in the British Virgin Islands close to the Bitter End Yacht Club.
While on your yacht charter in the BVI you may sail by or snorkel some of the reefs around Necker Island and Mosquito Island.
