Durrell Conservation Academy
Durrell has a long history of training and supporting the next generation of conservationists via our academies in Jersey and Mauritius. We are world leaders in saving species from extinction and empowering others to run conservation projects worldwide, operating right at the interface between animals in the wild and those in captivity.
Our founder, Gerald Durrell believed that saving species from extinction was as much an art as a science and placed huge importance on sharing knowledge and skills with conservationists around the world, especially in the countries where the pressures are the greatest. For over three decades our training has inspired and equipped students with the skills they need.
Through the Durrell Conservation Academy, we aim to deepen the impact our training can have on both individuals and institutions engaged in the conservation of the natural world.
