Reuse, Recycle, Rewild
The Durrell Charity Shop generates vital funds for our global work to save endangered wildlife, revive precious landscapes, and reconnect people to nature.
Located within Jersey Zoo's car park next to Durrell Wildlife Camp, the shop has a designated drive-thru, making dropping off your donations as easy as possible.
In addition to donations from our wonderful supporters, the shop also sells a selection of eco-friendly merchandise and products made from recycled materials. Our "Upcycled for Durrell" area showcases lovingly crafted items kindly donated by volunteers, staff, and supporters.
Opening hours: Tuesday – Sunday, 10:00–16:30
Donation drop-off point: Tuesday – Sunday, 10:00–16:00
Please contact us to arrange furniture collections.
What we're looking for
Pre-loved, saleable items, including clothing, handbags, shoes, accessories, jewellery, toys, books, linen, soft furnishings, kitchenware, music, pictures and small furniture.
How you can help
If you have had a clear-out recently and are preparing to drop off your items at the charity shop, here are a few ways you can help us in advance of donating.
- Before donating large items of furniture, please email images to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will confirm if we have space to accept them
- Please wash any clothing and other fabrics
- Please wipe down hard surfaces
- Please only donate items that can be sold – if you think that someone you know would buy it, then we would love to receive it!
- If you have a large number of items to donate, please consider staggering your donations to help us with our storage capacity.
- Please do not leave donations outside when we are closed. This frequently results in your kindly donated goods being stolen or damaged, meaning they cannot be sold to raise funds for Durrell. The disposal of damaged items also costs the charity money.

- Anything broken, dirty, incomplete or unsafe
