No visit to Jersey can be complete without a visit to the home of Durrell Wildlife Conservation Trust.

The world famous Durrell Wildlife Conservation Trust provides visitors to Jersey the opportunity to see how Durrell works to save endangered species from extinction.


The Trust's founder, Gerald Durrell, inspired an army of conservationists, both at the Jersey headquarters and worldwide, with his vision, energy, passion and foresight. Not only was he a pioneer, helping generations to understand the importance of conservation, he was also a brilliant author.

Gerald Durrell died in 1995, but his legacy lives on. For nearly fifty years the Trust has been focusing its efforts on identifying some of the world's most endangered species under threat because of over-population, deforestation and global warming.

Durrell works in areas of the world which it regards as 'iconic communities'. Countries like Madagascar are home to such an incredible concentration of bio-diversity and uniqueness that makes the loss of species all the more devastating.

Where necessary, animals are brought back to Durrell headquarters in Jersey to breed, be studied and where possible, populations re-introduced back to their countries of origin.

The world famous Durrell Wildlife Conservation Trust provides visitors to Jersey the opportunity to see how Durrell works to save endangered species from extinction.

We invite you to walk, look, listen and play in 31 acres of incredible parkland. Marvel at 130 different species of mammals, birds, reptiles and amphibians, including gorillas, lemurs, flamingos, snakes and orang-utans.

News: September 2012, new male gorilla baby born at Durrell, he and his mum Kahili and dad Badongo would love you to come and see them!
