Founded in 1959 by author and naturalist Gerald Durrell, Durrell...

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.

Took the grandchildren to Durrell Wildlife Park this afternoon and used my daughter's family membership. Was told that I obviously wasnt thier mum and did I have ID. Paid £14.50 to get in - bleak and no animals about - £14.50 for a walk around a park basically. The lady on reception said they were a charity and if everyone... More

Dear annieDJersey, Thank you for taking the time to write a review, and we're disappointed to note that your visit did not live up to your expectations. However, our entry and membership policy is quite clear and we would indeed face considerable difficulties if people shared their membership. We offer a variety of membership packages to cater for everyone -... More

Very helpful staff, patient and informative. Clearly love their work. The whole ethos of the place is about conservation and the information provided helped us see the worldwide context. Needs a few more maps to help the 'newby' get around more easily. But 'getting lost' wasn't a hardship when every corner had something of interest.

A great day out at Durrell Wildlife Park. The cost was £29.50 for two adults, but a worthy cause. The site is very clean and the animals look well looked after. We spent 4 hours there and also had some lunch. It was relatively quiet whilst we were there in November. A really enjoyable few hours out, and would highly... More

We visited the Durrell Wildlife Park on 29/10/15. This was our second visit to the park, the last one being several years ago. Despite the wet weather we enjoyed the visit very much. Quite a few of the animals were inside, sheltering from the rain, couldn’t blame them really, but it made them much easier to see. The conditions suited... More

We enjoyed a very busy day at the zoo in Jersey. Lots to do and see and the children were kept busy all day long. An essential visit when hire on the island.

This park operates solely on donations and is doing an incredible job ensuring endangered animals have a chance. A wonderful family venue, and great displays. The animals a so beautiful, I could have stayed all day

Not the cheapest day out, but certainly a fantastic one! A previous reviewer calls this a wildlife park not a zoo, they are so right. It's great to see so many wild animals as free as they can be in great surroundings. The bats flying up to us, orangutans right next to us and a host of other animals was... More
