Gerald Durrell

Television presenter, naturalist, zookeeper and conservationist Gerald Durrell was born on 7 January, 1925 and died on 30 January, 1995. He founded the Durrell Wildlife Conversation Trust and the Durrell Wildlife Park in Jersey.

Many of his books, including the bestselling My Family and Other Animals (published in 1956), were based on his life experiences as an animal collector and enthusiast. He was born in India but moved to South London in 1928. He is widely recognized as helping to change the way zoos were run so that there was more focus on reserving and regenerating endangered species.
