Founded in 1959 by author and naturalist Gerald Durrell, Durrell Wildlife Park was officially renamed in his honour in 2006, having previously been known as 'Jersey Zoo'. It's 32 acres of beautifully landscaped park and farm lands are home to over 130 species of animal, many of which are endangered or vulnerable in the wild. The park serves as a sanctuary, captive breeding and research centre, and is the 'base' for Durrell Wildlife Conservation Trust's worldwide efforts to save species from extinction. The onsite facilities include a YHA accredited hostel, luxury 'wildlife camp' and Durrell Conservation Academy - which to date has trained over 3,500 conservationists from 135 countries.

A lovely day out for people of all ages. The gorillas and orangutans were very amusing especially the babies. The animals had very large enclosures and appeared to be content. Good play area and picnic places. Only disappointment was cafe. Roast beef sandwich which was £9 was ordered and brought to our table. It was a panini filled with roast... More

A great way to support endangered wildlife and a fun day out too. We went by Jersey Bus & Coach Tour company, which provided a novelty bus and commentary on board but it is possible to go by regular city bus for less, if you'd like to save a bit of money. Lots of regular talks are held throughout the... More

There are Gorillas, Tortoises, Urangatangs, Lemurs, small Bears, Flamingos and a host of other birds and animals. There are various 'speciality' houses for different species... More

I recently visited here with some family and had mixed opinions about it. I generally don't agree with zoo's and wouldn't have visited here if the choice had been mine. There are a lot of animals on display here and I was happy to see that overall, their enclosures were spacious and seemed appropriate... obviously not quite the same as... More

A fab day out, well worth the entrance fee! Especially the gorillas, watching them was incredible! My one year old enjoyed it as well and it was easy to push the buggy around. Definitely recommended!

We had a fantastic family day at Durrell's and thought the 'Gorillas & Orangutans are wonderful! A nice park to 'while the day away', although some of the staff in the Dodo cafe need to learn how to smile a little (tall lad clearing up!) as most of the visitors are enjoying themselves! Lots to see & lovely day.

This was the first time we had visited the Wildlife Park for over 20 years. It was lovely the but is now much improved. The animals are still as interesting as ever but the facilities such as cafes and toilets are much improved. We loved our day there
