To celebrate their 60th anniversary this summer, Durrell have partnered with Wild in Art, an organisation that create mass participation art trails, to get islanders and visitors our around the island, visiting unique Gorillas decorated by artists from Jersey and around the world.

The following images show the 40 brightly coloured, artist imagined, life-size gorilla sculptures, which will lead people on a trail of discovery, not only to see the gorillas themselves, but the nature in which they are placed. Some are found in attractions and venues and others in wild locations in parks and heritage sites.

This large scale community project will bring together art and conservation to help raise funds for Durrell, in particular it will mark the launch of their fundraising efforts to build a state of the art new gorilla house at Jersey Zoo. Durrell is aiming to better connect one million people to nature by 2025, playing a role in creating ‘a wilder, healthier and more colourful world for future generations’.
