Durrell Wildlife Conservation Trust (aka Jersey Zoo) is a 25 acre zoo that was established by Gerald Durrell in 1959 as a sanctuary and breeding centre for endangered species. They provide intensive hands-on management of endangered species at its headquarters and through 50 conservation programmes in 18 countries. The first gorilla that arrived to the park was in November 1959 and it was a two years old female called N'pongo that arrived directly from Cameroon. The first gorilla to born at the park was Assumbo (currently at Rostock), a male born in July 1973 to parents Nandi and Jambo.
