Durrell Wildlife Conservation Trust strives to support endangered animals from extinction. Introducing breeding programmes and supporting the environment. Durrell is a charitable organisation and, as such, has limited resources. They will endeavour to reply to all enquiries as quickly as possible but it may take slightly longer for them to get back to you if you are asking specific questions of certain departments.
Durrell exists to save species from extinction. It is essential to know if they are achieving this mission, so they can constantly improve and demonstrate their impact to their supporters. This is where the Durrell Index comes in. This set of indicators, timelines and stories track the threats facing their species, the actions they take, and the difference they make to some the planet’s most threatened animals.
It provides proof that conservation works: a story of hope in the battle to save the world’s wildlife.
Durrell strives to save the most threatened species in the most threatened places around the world. Biodiversity is essential for human survival and their aim is to ensure they can persist alongside the myriad of plants and animals that inhabit their planet.
