More Information:
For several years now, once a year, a number of Durrell’s overseas and UK based staff come to the zoo to get together with Jersey based staff. We share and review our results, plan our strategies and actions, and debate important issues. During the week, supporters may attend our Symposium at the zoo –
this year it takes place on Monday 1 October from 10am-5pm. Please contact us via [email protected] to find out more and book your free place.

This year we will be holding an engaging and thought provoking evening event that stimulates conversations about conservation, ensuring an ongoing legacy. This is a chance for Jersey based individuals, supporters and donors to be introduced to Durrell staff they wouldn’t ordinarily meet and to hear about the breadth of our mission with a global perspective. Limited to just 40 guests, a series of talks hosted in the theatre at Jersey Museum will be followed by a dinner at Tiffin’s.

From 2016–2018, the Durrell Annual Meeting has been generously funded and facilitated by Paul Sykes. We are delighted that he will be joining us on the evening.
