The beautiful setting of Les Augrès Manor, nestled in the lush, green rural Parish of Trinity, Jersey is steeped in history. The picturesque 17th century manor house sits on a site of medieval origin, but it’s the recent purpose – and its residents – that have put the house, its grounds and even the Island of Jersey itself, on the international map.
Since 1963, Les Augrès Manor has been home to Durrell Wildlife Conservation Trust, an international charity dedicated to saving species from extinction, famously founded by author and naturalist Gerald Durrell.
The 32 acres of beautifully landscaped Durrell Wildlife Park are home to some of the most threatened species of animal from all corners of the world, living safely in large, open and natural spaces that make for a truly unique window into their respective worlds.
We’re delighted to let you know that the care and hospitality that Durrell are world leaders at providing, for even their most demanding animal charges, is now offered to you and your family… along with all the one-of-a-kind experiences that come with sharing this ‘home from home’ for the most exotic, endangered and enthralling creatures on earth!
