Trust or DWCT
We accept that maintaining biodiversity is about conserving ALL species, not just the big, the furry and the cuddly ones.
Niall explained the decision, "In 1997, while on a pilgrimage to
Jersey Zoo (founded by Gerrald Durrell
OBE, whose books first got me interested in conservation) Anthea and I
heard about the captive breeding programme of Partula snails at Jersey,
London, Edinburgh and Chester Zoos, etc. We noted the links between
Whitby, Captain Cook and Moorea, and between ourselves, Gerrald Durrell
and CJS - and decided to adopt a Partula snail on behalf of CJS. We
christened him / her 'CJ Snail' because... well, as with most historic
events, it seemed like a good idea at the time..."
