Go Wild Gorillas is a celebration of the remarkable work achieved at Jersey Zoo and in the wild to protect species from extinction. Educating the next generation and inspiring them to be better connected to nature is pivotal to Durrells mission to significantly improve the fortunes of threatened wildlife around the world.
Gorillas in the wild have been pushed to the brink of extinction due to habitat loss, hunting, wildlife trade and the spread of infectious disease. Jersey Zoo has been home to these majestic apes for 60 years, successfully breeding them and training conservationists to protect these gentle giants.
To celebrate 60 years of gorillas at Jersey Zoo you are encouraged to Go Bananas to help make our Gorilla Grand Design dreams a reality. You can help create a much needed, state of the art, home to care for our beloved gorilla family.
Helping to create a wilder, healthier, more colourful world for future generations
