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.

The DWP is a fabulous place to meet old and new animals who share our planet. Gerald and Lee Durrell's Park and the Captive Breeding Programme is an essential place to visit. When I lived here I had the honour of meeting the first AYE AYEs brought from Madagascar, we had all tought they were extinct since 1940. I love... More

Nice zoo with a strong ethos for saving rare animals both in the wild and here in the zoo. Well signposted around the zoo with lots of information - highlights were young gorillas and orang-utans - slightly pricey but well worth a visit if you are in Jersey - gets very busy 1100-1400

A wonderful day out. Me, my husband, 3 yr old and 1 yr old. Lots to see and do. Great talks and up close encounters with animals. Lovely setting, nice to see the animals in there natural habitat (as much as possible) and not in a cage. Fantastic cafes onsite. The one nearest the entrance was superb. Would highly recommend...

Well worth a visit . A beautiful wildlife park with enclosures that look as natural as possible. It's well worth taking the time to listen to the animal talks that go on throughout the day . The staff were friendly and informative and helped to make our visit a fun day. It was a really hot day when we visited... More

Went here with hubby, although beautiful surroundings was disappointed! It has to be a good day weather-wise for this and we were lucky as it was. First of all the prices were not displayed anywhere in the reception area and we had just decided on the off-chance to go. At £12 per person we paid and expected to see alot... More

We had a wonderful time! We're hear in a family holiday around the Easter break and loved it as always. We have all been here many times and it just keeps getting better and better. We all cannot wait to return, the staff are friendly, the animals are all clearly well looked after and are content. Such a wonderful place!

Having been to South Africa and seen animals in the wild, I do not like zoos but this is different. The animals have good habitats and plenty to amuse them. I particularly liked the orang-utans at feeding time but I am sure the other animals are just as interesting when being fed. The only problem was that I found the... More
