The Jersey-based Durrell Wildlife Conservation Trust is celebrating its 50th anniversary of becoming a trust.

Naturalist Gerald Durrell registered the Jersey Wildlife Preservation Trust on 6 July 1963 in the Royal Court.

Renamed Durrell in memory of its founder, the wildlife park in Trinity has become world famous, thanks to its work saving endangered species.
