 Gerald Durrell
Gerald Durrell (known as Gerry to friends and family; January 7 1925 - January 30 1995) was a naturalist, zookeeper, author and television presenter, best known for founding the Jersey Zoological Park on the Channel Island of Jersey in 1958, and for writing a number of books based on his animal-collecting expeditions.
He was born in Jameshedpur, India of British parents who returned to the UK after the death of his father in 1928, but moved to mainland Europe in 1933 so he became used to travelling at an early age.
His wildlife expeditions began with a 1947 trip to the area that eventually became the country of Cameroon (financed by a £3,000 inheritance) and continued for many decades, during which time he became famous for his work for wildlife conservation.

 Gerald Durrell Memorial Jersey Zoo
He pursued his ideal against the tide of opinion that claimed that the world was much the same as it always had been, and that extinctions were, after all, just part of the evolutionary process.
As a young collector of animals for zoos he soon became dissatisfied with the way zoos were managed, and he determined to have a zoo of his own, and in 1959, as we have heard, he opened the Jersey Zoological Park.
Gerry had learnt the importance of carefully recording observations at Theodores' knee and he insisted that research overseas as well as in the Zoo, and its dissemination to the Conservation community, was critical to all captive breeding efforts.
