Join fellow Durrell supporters for a once-in-a-lifetime adventure in India! 

The Founder’s Trek celebrates 100 years since the birth of our visionary founder, Gerald Durrell. 20 daring and dedicated individuals will walk 60km from Gerry’s birthplace in West Bengal to the tall grasslands of Assam, home of the Pygmy Hog Conservation Programme. 

This expedition includes hiking and camping within sight of the world's third highest mountain, Kanchenjunga, with a unique behind-the-scenes insight into Durrell's vital wildlife conservation work. You’ll have the exclusive opportunity to meet the world’s smallest pig, the Endangered pygmy hog, and the passionate team saving it from extinction. 

Will you take on the ultimate fundraising challenge for Durrell, and join us in celebrating our founder’s centenary year?
