Gerald Durrell created a sanctuary for the world's most endangered species.
Durrell Wildlife Conservation Trust strives to save the most threatened species in the most threatened places around the world. Biodiversity is essential for human survival and the trust's aim is to ensure everyone can persist alongside the myriad of plants and animals that inhabit our planet.
If you have been watching the fantastic six-part series of the Durrells on ITV you may now want to visit Jersey Zoo. Located in an idyllic lush park in the country parishes, it has an array of some of the most endangered species on the planet.
Henry Cavill, most famous for his role as Superman, is Durrell's ambassador. For the past two years, Henry has returned to the Island to run The Durrell Challenge - a 13K race in support of conservation - and then spend the day at the Zoo.
Plenty of reason to visit.
