The Durrell Wildlife Conservation Trust has moved into 2019 looking forward to its 60th anniversary....It was founded back in 1959 by author and naturalist Gerald Durrell.
The charity is committed to saving some of the most vulnerable animals on the planet from extinction.
For instance, a duck thought to be extinct for 15 years has been brought back from the brink and given a new home on a remote lake in Madagascar.
In the last 30 years, Durrell has helped move 14 target species in danger of extinction away from the edge.
As a Jersey girl, I'm very proud of Durrell and the work it does, and wish everyone there and associated with it a very Happy 60th Anniversary! Keep up the wonderful work :-)
Actions for Animals
Wildlife and our last remaining wild places are being destroyed because of human action or inaction and because of our own short –term greed.
