Durrell Wildlife Conservation Trust, Les Augres Manor, Trinity

No trip to Jersey would be complete without a visit to the famous Durrell Wildlife Conservation Trust set in 31 acres. Established by the late author and naturalist Gerald Durrell over 40 years ago, the zoo has more than 130 species of animals, many of them the rarest in the world. He successfully bred endangered species and returned many offspring to the wild.  See the animals roaming freely among the trees including gorillas, lemurs and orang-utans. Enjoy a picnic on the lawns or lunch at the Dodo restaurant. There is also a large gift shop.
