Mauritius, the green and mountainous island in the Indian Ocean, once the home of the ill-fated dod, by the 1970s still had many unique but seriously endangered species. To rescue some of them from extinction, Gerald Durrell passed uncomfortable nights in the jungle looking for bats and pink pigeons, spending his spare time exploring the enchanted worlds of the coral reefs. By the end of his trip, he had an extraordinary collection of animals to take to his Jersey sanctuary from where the progeny could, in time, be restored to Mauritius.

About the Author:

Gerald Durrell settled in Corfu with his family as a boy and immediately became fascinated by the island's natural history; these years are famously documented in My Family and Other Animals. In 1947 he began making expeditions to collect animals from around the world in order to protect endangered species. The Jersey Wildlife Protection Trust was formed to look after these animals, which is still run by his widow, Lee Durrell.
