We're reintroducing 3 species to the BVI: Flamingo, Scarlet Ibis & Roseate Spoonbill. Is the Scarlet Ibis the most beautiful bird in the world? #neckeranimals

geezz... Is that photo taken in Shanri-La?
 
That is fantastic news, I hope it is a success
 
Excellent! What a wonderful gift for our global community.
 
Interesting looking birds.
 
YOU BETTER CHECK OUT THE BIRD'S OF NEW ZELAND.THERE WAS NO MAMMALS UNTIL MAN CAME......!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
 
I have learned something! I didn't know these three species were once native to the BVI....what strategies will be used to ensure that they succeed? And are there other species that are planned for reintroduction?
 
Esto es realmente fantástico si parece que no fuera real!!!

That's amazing to see! Especially dear to me as it is the national bird of my homeland Trinidad 
 
GM food? For real? Niiiice...
 
Reintroduction is fine but you have to fully understand why they died out in that area beforehand.  Otherwise you could be sending these introductions down the same doomed path.

Hope it goes well and you did a study on impact - even in reintroduction.
 
as beautiful as the glossy ibis
 
They are very beautiful animals indeed
 
Very beautiful, but the Bataleur is hard to beat.

A commendable project though. 
 
Excellent work Sir Richard! Now, if only the BVI stopped dumping sewage in the Carribean, but one step at a time 
 
I don't know about MOST beautiful, but it's certainly up there!  :)
 
Do you ever get tired of knowing more about more? Probably not--just another reason to be a fan.
 
Reminds me of some of the beautiful birds back home in Cuba. Amazing color.  Nice share, Richard. 
 
Beautiful! Hope one day to see them in person . . . from a distance and in their natural habitat. :)
 
all animals are beautiful, including some humans
 
I love what "you" do with your money- cheers!
 
Bautiful birds, I didnt know them.  Thanks for this share.
 
i love everything of you ,i want to you with my physical eyes ,i want to just sit next to you .i saw you on ophra Winfrey's show
 
I thought the scarlet ibis was native to south America?
 
Mr. Branson. Your like the greatest billionaire ever. Keep up the good work and God bless.
 
All the cool kids look at scarlet ibises.
 
My Goodness! How gorgeous!!! Looks like ornaments on xmas tree!! Well done!
 
Sir Branson: well-done! My wife and I stayed in Anegada in the BVI near Cow Wreck Bay, and the wild flamingos were an incredibly beautiful sight to see.
 
ummm.........branson ummm........who r u
 
Yes it is the most beautiful bird I have ever seen! I love birds but only have two parakeets named Laverne and Shirley. Lots of blue birds and red birds outside my home. 
 
I have just watching your spacecraft in National Geographic television program...
 
Hi Richard, my Wife and I are going to visit the BVI in August for the first time...is there a special place you can recommend, since you are  a connoisseur and love the Island so much cheers!!! 
 
The Scarlet Ibis is indigineous to Trinidad and Tobago thou
 
Luis you have more chance of joining the Beatles than Branson answering that question m8 none of the Slebs politicians or business figures post on here themselves as they are only interested in us being interested in the important things they say and self promotion. Nothing we have to question them about is of any interest to them unless there is something in it for them but hey hell may freeze over and you will get an answer. 
 
I know they are busy. But they are humans just like you and me. Same wants
and needs and persuing happinnes and quality people . more resources.
They have assistants. But are reachable... I am proof of that.....
 
So with Larry Ellison buying the Hawaiian island of Lanai, have you opened a dialog with him on how to save the island's natural beauty and not over commercialize it 
 
yes it  is one of the grandest  and also  the national bird of my beloved countryThe Federal Republic of Trinidad and Tobago.
