Among the endangered species at Durrell are three generations of Sumatran orangutans; mighty 'Ya Kwanza', the 35 stone Western Lowland gorilla and his family, a Madagascan gentle lemur community; Brazilian black-lion tamarins and silvery marmosets in open woodland. Famous author, naturalist and broadcaster Gerald Durrell founded the Durrell Wildlife Conservation Trust nearly 50 years ago with the mission to save endangered wild animals from extinction; his park is the Trust’s international headquarters and plays a crucial role in this mission. Here conservationists work closely with the animals to better understand what is required to ensure they survive in their natural habitats. This information is shared with colleagues working on wild animal projects worldwide. Voted the best on the island by visitors, Durrell’s safely-enclosed, animal-themed play area is perfect for youngsters.

Explore the natural elements including the tides, wind, waves and coastline and discover the basic principles of boat design and propulsion. Living in an island means that people have spent the last 8,000 years building on their relationship with the sea. At the Maritime Museum you’ll see, hear and even smell human story of Jersey's maritime heritage. Before you leave, you will also have a chance to see restoration work being carried out on one of our historic boats in the boat workshop - you may even have some questions for the boat builder. Also located at the Maritime Museum is the Occupation Tapestry, made by the people of Jersey to commemorate the Liberation of Jersey from German Occupation during the Second World War.
