GO WILD FOR DURRELL

FRIDAY 23rd FEBRUARY 2018


WEAR IT, BAKE IT OR WORKOUT…… WILD!

Durrell is excited to announce its inaugural ‘Go Wild for Durrell’ fundraising day, an initiative supported by our global ambassador Henry Cavill.

Take a walk on the wild side, and unleash your animal spirit to help raise funds for Durrell Wildlife Conservation Trust.

On Friday 23rd February, Durrell is calling on all its supporters, anywhere in the world to enjoy a day of wild activities and fundraise wildly for the world’s endangered species.

Whether you’re at home, in the workplace, at school, or part of a club or team, Durrell invites you to come up with your unique take on ‘wild’, and take part in an animal-inspired fundraising activity of your choice.

Speaking on behalf of Durrell, Alex Shears, Head of Communications and Fundraising commented “The work we do both in Jersey and all over the world is really serious, but getting involved in ‘Go Wild for Durrell’ is a really fun way to support our mission and help protect the world’s wildlife. I am really excited to see all the creative ways that people take part in this initiative.”




What is ‘Go Wild for Durrell’?

This is Durrell’s first fundraising event of this kind, which is planned to be an annual event. Whether you’re at home, in the workplace, at school, or in a club, Durrell wants you to take part in an animal inspired activity to raise funds for Durrell Wildlife Conservation Trust.

Did you know that Durrell is an international charity and that it costs over £8 million to run every year? Since 1959, Durrell have been on a mission to save species from extinction, and we need your help now more than ever!

Taking part in ‘Go Wild for Durrell’ is a fun way to raise money and awareness for endangered species. Please, help Durrell protect our beautiful, wild, world.
