Jersey Zoo was founded in 1959 by author and naturalist Gerald Durrell. It's 32 acres of beautifully landscaped park and farm lands are home to over 100 species of animal, many of which are endangered or vulnerable in the wild. The zoo 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.

We had a lovely day here, it’s been many years since we’ve been to a zoo and it was very educational and enjoyable. Staff were always keen to impart their knowledge too.

Not to be missed. Gerald Durrells pioneering work to save species from extinction continues. Don’t expect a zoo but more a conservation parkland. Lots of picnic areas, highlight for us ‘Keeper Talks’ and feeding times for the orangutans & gorillas. The Gerald Durrell story fascinating....More
