Durrell’s CEO Dr Lesley Dickie and Louis-Pierre Boulle describe the success of rescue 2 years on at the Durrell Lecture

This year’s Durrell Lecture at the British Library in London featured conservationists from the Durrell Wildlife Conservation Trust and the Jean Boulle Group who highlighted the success of the emergency rescue of three species of rare reptiles, which might otherwise be facing extinction. Following the Wakashio oil spill in Mauritius in 2020 the reptiles were airlifted from the disaster-hit islands and taken to Jersey Zoo.
