There is so much to do at Jersey Zoo! With over 100 species to see, you’ll need to take a break, so why not stop at one of our cafés for a refreshing drink and bite to eat? You can sit indoors or outdoors and soak up the peaceful surroundings of our beautiful grounds. Getting around is easy - all our paths are wide and pushchair friendly, and we have mobility scooters and wheelchairs available for hire. Let the kids run around at the Dodo Playground and on your way out, stop at the gift shop for that special memento of your day or a present for a friend.

Book an animal encounter before you visit and you’ll have the chance to meet some of your favourite animals and find out how we take care of them at our zoo. Our beautifully landscaped grounds are the perfect setting for a truly memorable event – from weddings to summer balls or special birthday dinners, we have a number of venues that will lend themselves perfectly to your event.

Animals at Jersey Zoo

Whether you like bats, birds, boas or bears, with over 100 species at Jersey Zoo there is something here for everyone. Come and be amused by the orangutans, watch our young gorilla playing with his dad, and see the tamarins scampering freely amongst the trees. Enjoy the otters playing in the water or spot the meerkats guarding their burrows. Wander through the aviaries as birds fly above your head and get up close with the flamboyant flamingos. Take a stroll around the reptile and amphibian house, and see if you can spot the camouflaged chameleons. Our newly-extended bat enclosure is a world-first for fruit bats in captivity and allows the bats to fly around in a huge 100m circle – be prepared to see some amazing acroBATics!

Animals we work with in the Wild

Global conservation is a huge priority for Durrell, with field staff operating programmes around the world, from the grasslands of Assam in northern India to the tiny Caribbean island of Montserrat. We focus on islands where unique species are in danger and on animals suffering the worst declines, such as primates, reptiles and amphibians. Animals we work with include the mountain chicken frog, one of the largest frogs in the world; the ploughshare tortoise, the most threatened tortoise on the planet due to illegal poaching; and the pink pigeon, one of our success stories – over 30 years of working with these beautiful birds has increased the wild population from just 16 to over 400 wild birds.
