Zoo animals star in new webcams at Durrell

Webcams have been set up at Durrell Wildlife Conservation Trust in Jersey for the first time.

They will be used to monitor the zoo's nocturnal animals and can be viewed online.

Meerkats, skinks and fruit bats are among the animals which will have camera's on them 24 hours a day.

Durrell's Kelly Barker said: "People should be able to experience all our activities, including our work in the field and our training programmes."

The trust was started in 1959 by the author and naturalist Gerald Durrell, whose aim was to help save animals from extinction.
