"He [Gerald Durrell] has been a beacon to us all. I don't think you could over-estimate the contribution he has made to the way in which zoos have redefined their role in the last 20 years. It was his influence that showed us the way when we reorganised ourselves three years ago. We have a personal debt  to him.

Jo Gipps, Director, London Zoo

"The Zoo which Durrell founded on Jersey has been one of the very few that has successfully mixed displaying animals to the public in a sensible and humane way with effective involvement in field conservation. Many members of the zoo world originally saw him as a renegade. But he was a renegade who was right."
