Durrell

Durrell Wildlife Conservation Trust is The Atlantic Hotel’s philanthropic partner. Durrell is an international charity working to save species from extinction.

Headquartered at Jersey Zoo, Durrell focuses on the most threatened species in the most threatened places. Established by author and conservationist Gerald Durrell in 1959, Durrell’s overall aim is for more diverse, beautiful and resilient natural landscapes in which species can thrive, and people can enjoy a deeper connection with nature. Its approach concentrates on the rewilding of animals, the rewilding of ecosystems and the rewilding of people.

To date, The Atlantic Hotel has raised almost £30,000 in support of the incredible work the charity does around the world.

What can you do?

There are many ways in which you can help us on our sustainability journey.

  • Visit Jersey Zoo. Not only is this a great day out but your entrance fee will go towards supporting this fantastic charity.
  • Reuse towels. If you’re happy to reuse your towels please hang them up. If you would like them replaced please leave them on the floor or in the bath.
  • Switch off. Please make sure the lights are off when you’re not in your room.
  • Drink tap water. Please feel free to ask for tap water rather than bottled water. If you have your own water bottle please ask any member of our team and we’d be happy to fill it up for you.
  • Hire a bike. Jersey is best explored by bike. Hire one of our electric bikes in summer and explore the island at a slower pace whilst helping us reduce carbon emissions.
