Durrell Conservation Academy

"Staying at Les Noyers is ideal, both for access to the park facilities and for maximising immersion in the course. The facilities provided are excellent."

ESR course participant, 2007

Les Noyers is a traditional Jersey farmhouse, located in the north western corner of our park. As well as housing Durrell Conservation Academy, Les Noyers includes Durrell Wildlife Hostel and dining facilities.

There are not many training centres or hostels in the world where you can be in a lecture one minute and watching a gorilla the next.

We have 10 hostel style rooms, capable of hosting up to 32 people. We also have a lounge with a vast array of DVD’s, and a small dining room. We can arrange special tours around Jersey Zoo, including behind the scenes tours, run by Durrell staff and volunteers. Moreover, we can arrange pickups from Jersey’s airport or harbours. Our hospitality team can prepare meals for all our groups and course residents.
