Durrell Wildlife Conservation Trust

In partnership with Wild in Art, the Durrell Wildlife Conservation Trust will organise Go Wild Gorillas, an exciting world-class sculpture trail around Jersey to celebrate their 60th Anniversary in 2019. Similar events have animated cities across the world, raising millions of pounds for charitable causes.

“…brightly coloured, artist imagined, life size gorilla sculptures will be placed across the island which will lead people on a trail of discovery not only to see the gorillas themselves, but the nature in which they are placed.”

Dr Lesley Dickie, Durrell’s CEO

Durrell Wildlife Conservation Trust is an international charity working to save species from extinction. Headquartered at Jersey Zoo in the Channel Islands, Durrell focuses on the most threatened species in the most threatened places.

Established by author and conservationist, Gerald Durrell, in 1959, Durrell’s overall aim is for more diverse, beautiful and resilient natural landscapes in which species can thrive and people can enjoy a deeper connection with nature.  Their approach concentrates on the rewilding of animals, the rewilding of ecosystems and the rewilding of people.
