I don't like zoos or seeing animals in captivity, but Durrell is all about preservation. It's still slightly disheartening to see gorillas appearing to look bored. Once you get over that, this is an extraordinary place. My lasting memory is of an Orangutan mother covering herself and her baby with a 'shawl' made of sacking. Experiences/sights here can be pretty moving and by the end even someone who dislikes zoos will recognise the importance of Durrell.
