In 2020, Durrell reached out for people to support their ‘Love Your Zoo’ appeal as the effects of Covid-19 devastated income at Jersey Zoo. As a charity, Durrell relies entirely on support from members, visitors, and donors to look after the animals at Jersey Zoo and to continue their vital work to protect precious wildlife and ecosystems.

8-year-old Nelly turned her passion for drawing into a fundraising challenge and set up her own JustGiving page, Nelly Draws 4 Durrell, which has raised an astonishing £3,000.

In partnership with Jersey Arts Centre’s Christmas production of ‘My Family and Other Animals’, the exhibition celebrates Nelly’s dedication and creativity. It also gives you the opportunity to support, too.

Together, with your help, we can re-wild our world!
